Trayless minced meat is one of ULMA Packaging’s most sustainable packaging solutions for blocks of minced meat
The trayless minced meat application is one of ULMA Packaging’s most sustainable packaging solutions for blocks of minced meat. This application is ideal for manufacturers looking for more sustainable solutions in order to minimise the impact on the environment, while maintaining the benefits of packaging in terms of product protection and shelf life. Consisting of a flow pack with modified atmosphere (MAP), this packaging solution omits the rigid plastic trays normally used in this type of application.
