Combining a revolutionary pre-made tray system with versatile vacuum skin, Darfresh® on Tray is packed with innovation. The key differentiators are the use of a perforated tray/skin and cutting process, affording zero skeleton film waste, plus the integration of special vacuum valves for optimal productivity. Developed in close collaboration with equipment manufacturer G. Mondini, the new solution incorporates all of the proven benefits of the Darfresh® family to meet the most ambitious efficiency and sustainability goals of the European fresh red meat, poultry, fish and processed meat sectors.

Darfresh® on Tray is geared to food producers and packers with a preference for pre-made trays and/or an offline loading process. It uses specially formulated skin top web materials and rigid trays to create a vacuum ‘second skin’ for the food product it protects and presents. Visual appeal comes from the firm yet gentle wrapping of the food item with all contours being accommodated safely yet without distortion.

The pre-made tray and Darfresh® skin top web are heat-sealed together right up to the product’s edges ensuring minimal film consumption and a resultant elimination of potential waste disposal fees. Integral vacuum technology leads to a 40% improvement in packaging speeds compared to alternative systems, meaning higher productivity for the same ecological footprint. Darfresh® on Tray constitutes a full system approach with easy integration into an offline manufacturing process and retention of the producer’s existing load approach. Demonstrating the Sealed Air commitment to sustainability is a 30% reduction in pack volume as compared to standard MAP alternatives.

Incorporation of the proven Darfresh® skin process brings differentiating shelf life extension for less food wastage and sealing excellence reduces the risk of dripping and contamination. Natural maturation in the pack is an added bonus for fresh meats. To learn more, visit www.sealedair.com.
