The right packaging for your food        

Every year, the food industry produces millions of tons of food, which need to be packaged for transport, storage and sale. Meat and meat products, dairy and cheese products, potatoes, vegetables and dried fruit all benefit from packaging that is resilient and yet appealing. Space-saving packaging that not only protects food but also ensures longer shelf life is more in demand than ever.

The food industry is the largest sector that allfo and allvac supply. 

The production of thermoforming barrier films based on polyethylene and polyamide is the core competence of allvac. These composite films are used in particular for the packaging of perishable foods.

The portfolio is perfectly complemented by allfo. The sister company is European market leader for high-quality vacuum bags, which are available in various sizes and film thicknesses.

 Types of 11-layer thermoforming films:

The allfex E (EVOH Barrier) is ideal for packaging products with extended shelf life. The allflex E is convincing due to its increased transparency, excellent formability and solid puncture resistance.

The allflex S (medium barrier) is a versatile composite film combining several properties of different film materials, such as barrier and sealing properties. Due to its exceptional transparency and gloss, it can be used for a wide range of applications. 

The allflex UHT (medium barrier) is, due to its temperature tolerance up to 121°C, suitable for sterilizing corn cobs. The film’s good transparency and increased puncture resistance ensures the products an appetizing appearance on retail shelves. 

Types of vacuum bags:

allfo produces the three-edged vacuum bags made of high-quality PA/PE barrier film in various formats. The PA (polyamide) provides an oxygen barrier and aroma protection, while PE (polyethylene) ensures a moisture barrier and optimal sealing properties.

The ASB shrink bag (PVDC) or our ASBC shrink bags with EVOH barrier extend the shelf life of the products with an almost “invisible” packaging. The special film structure and selected high barrier materials ensure high puncture resistance and long-lasting protection.

The multilayer bags guarantee protection. Even at high humidity. Depending on the product, different material layers up to high barrier are used. When constructing the 5-, 7- or 9-layer multilayer bags, the barrier layer is precisely matched to the requirements of the product. In this way they extend the shelf life of food products.

Freshly caught fish must be processed quickly in order to optimally retain its quality. The vitamins and fatty acids of fish dishes are equally preserved when frozen or during the cooking process. The same applies, of course, to the taste, texture and colour of the fish.

Meat is one of the most sensitive products because it can spoil quickly. At the same time, consumers want products that are not unnecessarily contaminated with preservatives. 

The allfo Group's packaging solutions are ideal for ensuring that meat and sausage products have a significantly longer shelf life. They prevent premature spoilage and extend the expiration date. With our packaging the products are protected during transport and storage and even meat with pointed bones is securely packed. 

Cheese must be tasty and attractively packaged. The packaging solutions not only preserve the flavour and taste of your cheese, but also increase its shelf life. The seasoning and flavours are preserved because of a efficient gas exchange. It leads to an optimum maturation process.  

Vegetables are among the products that have long since become an indispensable source of healthy food. Potatoes, beetroot or corn are among the classics that can be preserved for so long without losing their appetizing appearance. With the packaging solutions natural foods receive a longer shelf-life. It is also the perfect choice for sterilization in autoclaves.
