Seafood and Meat Packaging Seals in Freshness, Prevents Leaks and Reduces Costs
From fresh meat, poultry and seafood to bulk deli, hot dogs and bacon, DuPont packaging materials preserve freshness, enhance appearance and reduce costs.
When it comes to packaging your meat, poultry and seafood product, some things are non-negotiable. Clarity, consistent seal integrity and superior puncture- and abrasion-resistance are must-haves. With increased consumer demand for convenience, food safety, and quality, seafood and meat packaging – whether fresh, frozen or processed – plays a critical role in meeting these requirements.
We have a broad portfolio of materials that enable easier processing and reduce waste and overall cost – across a variety of packaging types.
