AND FOOD SHELF LIFE
Vacuum packaging is the only real solution to the problem of bacterial proliferation, avoiding unnecessary food waste and more conscious consumption of food. By now, all over the world – in professional catering as well as at home – people are more careful about what they consume and what they dispose of, with an increasing focus on the conscious use of food resources and food vacuum packaging machines.
VACUUM PACKING KEEPS FOOD HEALTHY AND LONGER-LASTING
VACUUM AND SAFETY
Thanks to the vacuum cycle procedure, the air is extracted from the packaging bags, eliminating the presence of oxygen inside. The food, no longer in contact with oxygen, will be absolutely safe because without oxygen there is no bacterial growth. As a result, the food lasts longer and the shelf life of each product is greatly extended. Depending on the type of food, it can last up to ten times longer than normal refrigerated storage.
Vacuum packaging is an indispensable resource not only for the organization and rationalization of professional kitchens in restaurants, hotels, or catering chains but also for canteens, hospitals, airlines, and anything else that involves large quantities of food and responsible organization of consumption. In these environments it is necessary to be able to portion everything and thanks to the packaging bags you can choose the most appropriate portion size for your needs and you can prepare in advance the cooking and storage of food for large quantities.
NO FOOD WASTE
For the domestic sector, vacuum packing is the only solution to avoid wasting leftover food, which can be reused in a healthy and safe way even several days after cooking. How many times are there leftovers left over after dinner that you don’t know what to do with because you don’t want them back the next day? With its wide range of domestic vacuum packaging machines, Besser Vacuum meets the needs of private users, families, and small-scale consumers, ensuring healthy food on tables all over the world and responsible, prudent consumption of food resources.
