Pigmea has wide experience in supplying flexible packaging for the packing of fruits, vegetables and other agricultural products, including IV Range fruits and vegetables, that is, those which are commercialised already washed and chopped.
At the avant-garde of an evolving sector
This sector has dramatically changed during the last years due to the popularization of IV Range products, whose consumption is exponentially growing. The packing of fruits and vegetables is a process of great complexity, as the metabolic activity is a factor limiting the commercial life of the product, as it continues after the harvesting. Therefore, the film for food packaging plays a fundamental role in the preservation and extended shelf life of the product.
In the particular case of IV Range, the film usually has selective permeabilities for controlling the respiration of fruits and vegetables, and anti-mist treatments to improve transparency and allow the product to shine through in the shelf.
The films and complexes offered by Pigmea, for horizontal (Flow-Pack or lidding) and vertical machines are designed for modified atmosphere products. They extend the shelf life of the product, ensuring quality for the final client and improving the producer logistics. Pigmea can also supply flexible packaging solutions for frozen products.
Pigmea offers custom-made films for automatic packaging of fruits and vegetables by means of high quality flexographic printing, accurately and carefully adapted to the print runs required by its clients.
