Vacuum skin packaging encloses the food product like a second skin, which enhances the product’s visual appeal and extends its shelf life as it prevents oxygen flow inside the package, which results in reduced degradation rate.

Increasing Demand for Extended Shelf Life of Packaged Meat to Drive Vacuum Skin Packaging Market

Over the years, an increasing number of people have shown preference for packaged meat. Americans have emerged as the highest spenders on meat products. Some of the key factors considered by shoppers in the region before buying packaged meat are convenience, variety, and transparency. The clear and transparent films impart an attractive and crisp visual appeal to the product. This, coupled with extended shelf-life of food increases the preference for vacuum skin packaging and improves the integrity of the pack itself.

Vacuum skin packaging scores more than modified atmosphere packaging in extending the shelf life of beef. A significant amount of packed products, such as confectionary, meat, and other dairy products, is wasted across the world if not consumed within a month of packaging leading to monetary loss. As a result, retailers and vendors prefer packaging solutions that promise extended shelf life. This also enables vendors to increase the transit distance of packaged products, thereby enhancing their export capabilities and increase global operations. Therefore, vacuum skin packaging is fast emerging as one of the most prominent food packaging techniques.

This emphasizes on the importance of vacuum skin packaging, which is expected to represent most of the meat packaging industry growth over the next few years. Leveraging the range and versatility of vacuum skin packaging can improve the marketability of meats and poultry. Consumer inclination toward case-ready packaging is increasing. This is anticipated to initiate a chain reaction leading to supplier-side demand for case-ready packaging. Exporters of packaged meat are expected to keep an eye on modern packaging technologies such as vacuum skin packaging to boost trade capabilities in keeping with the rising demand for packaged meat across the world.
