At PACK EXPO in September, Mitsubishi Gas Chemical America will showcase a flexible packaging technology that potentially more than doubles the shelf life of food products. The technology keeps foods fresher and enhances the consumer appeal of popular brands while minimizing food waste and costs.

“We offer food processors a free-assessment to determine the increased shelf life that our technology will bring to their brands,” says Sean Hael, manager of marketing and sales at Mitsubishi Gas Chemical. “Our technology will help food manufacturers build greater consumer preference and brand loyalty for their natural and organic and gluten-free products.”

Mitsubishi’s technology, embedded as a film layer within flexible packaging, removes oxygen trapped within sealed packages to safely extend and protect original food flavors, aromas, and textures without the need for sachets or packets. Ideal for retort packaging applications, the solution protects products such as soups, sauces, processed fruit, dips, protein bars, prepared meals, wet pet foods, as well as an array of natural and organic and gluten-free products that are particularly vulnerable to food spoilage. The preservative-free innovation which prevents mold growth and color changes, odors, and spoilage in foods is U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved.

The innovation also eliminates the need for additional sodium, spices, and other additives to counteract the effects of high heat required in retort processing. By removing the oxygen within sealed bags and pouches, Mitsubishi’s technology allows food brands to retain their original natural flavors, mouth-feel, and savory tastes.

Mitsubishi’s solution will be on display at PACK EXPO Las Vegas from September 25 through 27, 2017 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Central Hall Booth #3636.
