Easy Hygienic Wash-down VFFS Machines for Frozen FoodsROVEMA Packaging Solutions For Frozen Food Producers

According to AFFI, the American Frozen Food Institute, the frozen food market experienced a 21% increase in retail sales in 2020 alone and while the packaging demands of this market call for many of the same priorities like filling accuracy and package quality, the tough environmental and hygienic demands call for equally tough equipment. 

IQF: Individual Quick Freezing 

The Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) market has been exploding over the past 10 years offering new products and packaging styles in the freezer section at the local grocery stores. IQF products are packaged in many forms in today’s market. From the traditional LDPE pillow bags, and bag-in-box packages, to more premium styles in flat bottom style bags with a gable top featuring a zipper reclosure or multi-component meals. IQF covers a wide variety of products from frozen vegetables, ready-made meals, and meat.

Additional recloseable features can be offered such as a zipper reclosure or tape reclosure for the full range of bag styles. An intermittent or continuous motion vertical bagger can be offered for IQF depending on the application requirements.
