BluWrap used to ship fresh pork from Denmark to Australia

BluWrap_WebCaseStudy_Images-01US-based BluWrap provided its patented oxygen management technology to pack fresh pork being shipped from Ringsted, Denmark to Melbourne, Australia.

Said to eliminate the need for freezing or vacuum packaging, the technology maintained a controlled environment for the pork, which was in transit for 56 days.

The test was part of the BluWrap’s ongoing research and development with pork, following requests from Chinese and Japanese customers for shipments of fresh pork from foreign suppliers.

The company has also conducted land tests of the packaging technology in Chile and the Netherlands.

BluWrap CEO Mark Barnekow said: “This first pork shipment opens significant new market opportunities for BluWrap.

“Until now, our efforts have been focused on shipping seafood using ocean containers so that producers and suppliers can use a more environmentally-friendly way to bring their product to market.

“With this successful shipment, we expect to thoughtfully extend our technology to include pork and look forward to working with other high volume proteins like chicken, beef, and lamb.”

During the latest ocean consignment, BluWrap worked with pork producer Danish Crown to ship the meat directly from the processor to the end customer in Australia.

With its technology, BluWrap aims to provide savings and the reduce the environmental impact of packaging materials.

In July 2015, BluWrap provided its solution for an ocean shipment of fresh salmon from Chile into the port of Tianjin, China.
