Primary packaging of food products using flexible packaging materials is the most diverse and extensive packaging before bottles, cups and cartons. Food packaging is designed specifically for presentation of hygienically packaged popular sizes at the point of sale and to preserve these until point of use. It is therefore imperative that the packaging process, the dosing machine and the packaging as such meets the high demands for food products.
Primary packaging comprises two main types:
■ vertical designed packaging
■ horizontal designed packaging
HASSIA-REDATRON offers a portfolio of machines for vertically designed packaging. Please refer to the sub-categories in this chapter for a variety of examples of this type of packaging.
