The food industry has been placed under great strain due to the increased demand for produce and prepared products. During these unprecedented times, Proseal, a manufacturer of tray sealing equipment, is continuing to supply growers, retailers and food processors with machinery in industry-best lead times.
With emphasis on increased food safety to protect consumers, tray sealing’s top seal technology provides secure and food-safe packaging by replacing the traditional clamshell style lid with a thin film lid that seals to the flange of the package. This type of packaging not only better protects produce & prepared products throughout each phase of the supply chain, but also creates a tamper-evident package, making it easy for consumers to detect if the package has been tampered with or opened.
Tray sealing also allows for Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) which creates a product that can extend the life of a product on the shelf for up to 14 days before spoiling. This allows retailers to cut down on food waste while still providing fresh products for those that need them.
Proseal’s manufacturing operation, located in Richmond, Virginia is continuing to manufacture its tray sealing machinery with no down time. The facility can manufacture toolsets and spare parts to accompany the existing machinery and is able to ship to anywhere in North America.
