For our Food Service products in the nut and snack mix category we use an all new packaging that maintains our products at even higher levels of freshness and quality throughout their shelf life. Our new bags are constructed with two layers of specialty film to create a more durable bag for longer customer use that also provides greater resistance to outside conditions that can effect the product once inside the bag.

Our bags start by using a PET (coated polyester terephthalate) outer layer as a barrier. This layer provides an excellent oxygen barrier. Oxygen is the primary factor contributing to product degradation during transit. In house tests have shown that bags with an initial oxygen content of 1.82% at time of production only increased to 4.23% after 6 months of storage, oxygen levels are typically around 20% in the atmosphere. Our packaging techniques fill the bags with nitrogen, commonly referred to as a ‘Nitrogen Flush’, prior to sealing in order to maintain minimal oxygen content which allows our product to retain greater freshness for a longer period of time.

In addition to maintaining freshness of the product, our bags also prevent the transfer of odors or flavors from one product to another while in transit or at end user consumption. This robust outer barrier layer ensures that our bags have oxygen and moisture resistance properties equivalent to a metalized film while maintaining product visibility for identification and verification.

The second layer is a LLDPE (linear low density polyethylene) which gives the bag its rigidity, clarity, strength and puncture resistance. This thickness of film also allows increased strength at the reclose point which provides for a consistently strong, easy to use seal after multiple uses. The seal is also slightly larger than seals found on other bags, this larger seal is used so that it can be easily operated even while wearing gloves.
