Hygienic thermoform range which creates a vacuum pack that protects the product and fits around it like a second skin. Specially designed films are used as top films to enhance product’s appearance.



The main function of skin packaging is to extend the product’s shelf life. It also adds features that provide additional value such as self liquid retention to prevent leakage. This delays microbial growth and adds the option of vertically displaying the package.

In a skin pack, both films are sealed over the whole surface except the area occupied by the product, ensuring its most natural and original look.

Specially targeted for fresh meat, processed meat, fish, poultry, ready meals, cheese and pates.
