a versatile solution

perfect for portions

As well as whole foods, our Skintec vacuum film is ideal for portioned products or ready-to-eat convenience foods. Single servings of cheese or slices of meat and charcuterie are just as at home in Skintec as whole fish or entire joints of meat. That's because whatever the dimensions, texture or size of your food product, the robust formulation of Skintec offers a high puncture resistance that will conform to its shape perfectly and offer enhanced protection from leaks or contamination. Furthermore, Skintec is just as suited to raw, uncooked foods as foods that are pre-cooked or smoked and can be coupled with plastic or cardboard liners for a truly versatile packaging choice.
