Multisorb to Showcase Active Packaging at Process Expo


Buffalo, NY, October 17, 2011 - Multisorb Technologies, the world leader in active packaging technology, has announced that they will be exhibiting at PROCESS EXPO 2011 on November 1-4. Multisorb will have food packaging experts on hand to discuss how active packaging can extend product shelf life and preserve the quality characteristics that consumers have come to expect.

Color of food, meat in particular, is one of the main attributes that consumers use to gauge freshness. The bright red coloring of a beef conveys freshness to the average consumer. Oxygen causes food to lose color and flavor and creates an unfavorable aroma - limiting shelf life. Active packaging technologies work to retain the quality and extend the shelf life of your processed or case ready meats.

Multisorb's Calculations through Operations℠ Program takes a holistic approach to active packaging selection that starts by creating an optimized sorbent and finishes with efficient dispensing of the sorbent into your product packaging. Multisorb's team of packaging scientists, food technologists and polymer scientists will evaluate your entire process - product evaluation, package evaluation, distribution environment, display case lighting, and any factors that can affect the sorbent functionality, and will create a sorbent that is specific to your product.

Your processed meats will retain color and flavor when customized FreshMax®, self-adhesive oxygen absorbers; FreshPax®, oxygen absorbing packets; or FreshCard, oxygen absorbing card, irreversibly absorb and maintain the oxygen levels inside the product's sealed packaging. For case ready meats, our MAPLOX(TM) program reliably preserves the taste and visual appeal of refrigerated meat.

When necessary, your customized sorbent can be dispensed using Multisorb's corresponding APA series of dispensers that are built to specifications for your unique sorbent and production line, creating a reliable dispensing system. This systems approach to dispensing enhances productivity and minimizes overexposure of oxygen absorber.

Multisorb will be showcasing the APA-1000 FreshPax(TM) and StripPax(TM) system, which is a low speed dispenser capable of dispensing up to 100 packets per minute. Multisorb's dispensers integrate seamlessly into many existing packaging lines.

Along with fresh and processed meat products, Multisorb offers active packaging solutions for all types of food products - baked goods, snacks, nuts, natural and organic foods, etc. Stop by our booth, no. 1054, and find out how we can help you maintain consumer acceptance and achieve your desired shelf life.
