"Retailers know about vacuum packaging and how it works and what
it does, but they were or are afraid of the logging/food safety/traceability part," he says. "Now with VacSmart we have the solution to it:
interactive electronic monitoring of your data at the machine. And the
machine creates your log as a PDF file and you can download it via USB
from the machine."
Minipack vacuum packers also are perfect for to-go meals, Bistrovic
says. Benefits include:
* Making the meal: marinating meats with the vacuum machine
* The bag/vessel: Minipack has two-compartment bags for
"dump'n'cook" meal programs, e.g. one compartment for meat,
another compartment for veggies
* Longer shelf life
* Traceability: collecting all data electronically at the machine
