What is Chub Packaging
Chub packaging is used in the food service industry as a cost-effective and efficient way to keep ground meats, pet foods, and alternative proteins as fresh as possible while refrigerated or frozen. Often used for refrigerating or freezing red meat (particularly ground beef), poultry, pork, pet food, and plant-based proteins. Chub packaging is growing in popularity in the meat packaging industry for its low cost, reliability and effectiveness, and ease of use by consumers.
Chub packaging & VFFS
Chub packaging is usually used with vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) machines, creating a cylindrical tube tied on either end with metal crimps. They typically come in one, three, five, and ten-pound sizes and usually use white or clear films. Regardless of the size of your chub packages, they are a favorite in the meat industry for their durability and cost. If your company currently uses VFFS for its food packaging, chub packaging is a great choice when selecting the right packaging materials for your various product types.
Benefits of chub packaging
There are quite a few advantages to using chub packaging to package ground beef, sausage, and other types of ground meats. First, chub packs very rarely break (especially when compared to flimsy trays), are just as effective as vacuum packaging and are guaranteed to keep the product inside safe from exposure to air, light, oxygen, or other contaminants. This is essential to adhere to food safety regulations and ensure that consumers do not get sick from contaminated sausage, ground beef, or any other type of ground meats.
Our chub packaging uses leakproof wrapping to reinforce freshness, and our packaging is consistent, regardless of the size or material used. Other benefits of chub packaging include its superior strength, oxygen-barrier properties, and fully printable film, which gives you the flexibility to include food safety information, a "sold by date," or anything else you need to include on your food packaging.
