|FreshCase® Case-Ready Packaging|
|Curwood’s FreshCase® films for case-ready meats deliver the advantages of vacuum packaging with the fresh red color consumers expect. Easy-open, freezer-ready packages allow meat to age and tenderize in package, stay until ready to use in fridge until Use-By date. Packaging achieves shelf life of more than 30 days, with display life of 14 days. Dramatically reduces spoilage and waste to help meat processors and grocers maintain critical profit margins. Uses 75% less packaging materials than traditional case-ready formats, while eliminating purge and blackened bones experienced with gas-flush packaging.|
