products," he says. "We're working with companies to address these
challenges of food safety and temperature control as well as other key
challenges like quality, packaging design, and sustainability.

Instore demand rising
In addition to selling machines used to make meal kits, Pac Machinery
sells many wrappers for foods including granola bars, crackers and
even individual hot dog buns, Goldberg says.

All Pac Machinery vacuum machines, Goldberg says, are capable of gas
flushing -typically with nitrogen -to extend shelf life. And many of the
company's vacuum machines can achieve in-package residual oxygen
levels of less than 1 percent.

And in the instore deli realm, the company makes a tabletop tray
sealer that's perfect for small quantities of sliced meats and cheeses
and other deli products, he says. Back-of-the-house vegetable prep
also can benefit from Pac Machinery products. "Our side sealers,
L-bar sealers and shrink tunnels are being used more often for
wrapping cucumbers, red and green peppers" and other vegetables,
Goldberg says.

One of the things that separates Pac Machinery from its competitors
when it comes to packaging equipment for grocery deli and prepared
foods departments, Goldberg says, is a commitment to working with
individual customers to configure packaging systems for very specific
applications. "Many of our products are highly customized and our application engineers are a valuable asset to our customers," he says. "We offer
integration expertise for placing a packaging solution into a larger ecosystem
of food prep equipment."

Instore demand is growing, he says, "especially for tabletop tray sealers
where small quantities of meat and cheese can be pre-packaged for
extended shelf life in convenient, portion-size packages."

Vacuum packaging specialist Minipack America highlighted its
new in-table sealer and its new app at the 2018 National Restaurant
Association Show.

Pac Machinery's vacuum packing portfolio includes a broad range of
both vacuum chamber sealers and nozzle-style sealers, Goldberg says.
"Chamber machines, of all sizes, are great for things like meat, cheese
and prepared fish products," he says. "Nozzle-style sealers are used for
everything from coffee bags as small as one pound to bulk nut bags as
large as 40 pounds."

The in-table machine was born out of a simple need among Orange,
California-based Minipack's customers, Joe Sielski, the company's
president, said at the show. "I lot of chefs tell us, 'I just don't have the
room'" for another piece of equipment in their kitchen.

The new app, meanwhile, which was set to go live in late May, lets
users do everything they could formerly do only on the machine itself,
remotely. It can turn on and run the machine and even automatically
submit a HACCP plan to state regulators, Sielski said.
Minipack vacuum packers features seamless chambers, pop-out seal bars,
temperature probes, trays for liquids, thermal label printers, PDF eLogs,
interactive displays, deep chambers and leg extensions for easy cleaning.
David Bistrovic, Minipack's advertising manager, said one key advantage Minipack has over its competitors is its ability to collect SOPs and
CCPs electronically at the machine - no hand-written logs required.

Minipack America's new in-table sealer provides a vacuumpacking option for those with space limitations.

Minipack also helps its customers with their HACCP plans. The
company's VacSmart machines include a free license on the Minipack
website, and implementation is aided through logging SOPs and CCPs,
Bistrovic says.

The 31D VacSmart in-table machine looks just like a drawer in a table.
When pulled out, it's a fully functional vacuum packer, with a touch
screen that can be programmed to ask users questions to ensure accurate use, a built-in labeler and other features that separate Minipack's
equipment from the competition, Sielski said.
