SavrPak deploys the laws of physics and thermodynamics to eliminate moisture from a container before its food deteriorates. With at-home deliveries and takeout spiking during the COVID-19 pandemic, the company has ramped up production of its patented food waste prevention technology.
Bill Birgen, aerospace engineer and inventor of the SavrPak technology: “SavrPark was first created as a way to keep our own lunch fresh, using the same underlying principles to develop environmental systems for aircraft and space vehicles. Our team is thrilled to now have the capacity to offer our technology to companies around the world to help save the state of delivery and takeout food.”
SavrPak is a frozen peel-and-stick patch that forces moisture from the air of a container before it condenses into liquid. The patch, which is made from food-grade materials, traps the moisture to keep it away from the food in the container. SavrPak can immediately reduce humidity in a food container by up to 45 percent, keeping food fresher and crisper “than any other solution on the market,” the company contends.
According to packaginginsights.com, when used in pre-packaged foods, the peel-and-stick patch has the ability to extend shelf life by 10 to 14 days, helping to solve the ballooning issue of food waste in the US, which throws away over 80 billion pounds of food each year.
