Your team is busy packaging your product and there is a fair amount of food waste left behind. Waste has become the new norm. After all, the finished product yields are what matter most, right?
What if the amount of food wasted and lost equaled roughly a third of your total daily yield?
Waste not, want not
Food waste is a huge problem for food manufacturers and packaging warehouses. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, roughly “1.3 billion tons of food are lost or wasted each year.” That amount for industrialized countries and the US equals about $680 billion. That’s a lot of lost revenue!
While this waste is not all limited to industry, it is still a concern among food manufacturers. New technologies of food packaging are vital to the success of your business and to limit food waste.
IPC is here to offer you heat seal blistering packaging and equipment solutions.
- Vertical form fill seal packaging (VFFS)
- Horizontal form fill seal packaging (HFFS)
What better way to improve your bottom line than through automation. BUT, limiting food waste is not the only benefit you gain from VFFS and HFFS products. There are many other features and benefits that we’re excited to share with you.
- Reduces food waste
- Reduces labor costs
- Increases product yields
- Simple to use
Easily reduce labor costs and increase product yields
Labor costs can rock your budget by up to 30%. So, of course, you want your workers as productive as possible. But, what do you do when you need higher product yields without increasing labor costs? The answer may lie with automation.
With VFFS and HFFS technology, you can churn out higher yields with more accuracy in less time. AND, VFFS and HFFS technologies ensure that your product weights are always accurate.
Simple to use technologies
Manufacturing equipment should never be difficult to operate. Training employees on new equipment takes up valuable time. So, why get a new technology if you’re going to have to spend hours training employees how to use them?
VFFS and HFFS technology are different.
VFFS and HFFS technology are simple to use, requiring little training. Automation makes productive high product yields seem like a breeze.
Color-coded buttons call attention to the operator about the status of operating parameters. Ethernet allows for remote adjustments by your manufacture technician. So, more product yields, less labor, and all at a reduced cost? Absolutely.
Always a fresh product
Heat seal packaging bags help ensure a better product, dry or liquid. The equipment and film operate at minimal costs with a high yield rate. During packaging, VFFS and HFFS replace air in the package with an inert gas to combat oxidation. That means a fresher product for your consumers.
