Meatup 2017, 24th May & 25th May, Arena MK, Milton Keynes, Stand 635

Meat and poultry companies are being urged to attend the ULMA Packaging Ltd stand at this year’s Meatup exhibition in Milton Keynes, to learn more about the latest high-speed technology developed by one of the country’s leading suppliers of packaging machinery and complete automated lines.  


ULMA’s technical team will be on hand at the show to provide details of the huge range of packaging solutions it has available, including the latest in tray sealing technology. Few organisations can match the diverse range of packaging machinery that ULMA will be showcasing. Ranging from horizontal flowrappers, thermoforming and skin packaging, tray sealing systems, vertical packaging machines, shrink side seal, sleeve wrapping and stretch film systems, there will be something to suit all budgets in the meat and poultry industry.


ULMA’s Business Manager, Paul McMahon, commented: “As an organisation we are going from strength to strength, year on year as more people look to combine ULMA’s expertise and knowledge with the latest in packaging technology. Our machines meet the highest standards demanded by the meat sector and whether a small producer or large multiple, we have equipment which is designed with efficiency in mind for both fresh and processed meats. Our strategic partnerships with companies supplying the latest in film technology mean that our customers can be assured of a quality finished product.”


Amongst the tray sealers which the ULMA team will be promoting, is the TSA 875. This automatic tray sealing machine is ideal for all kinds of preformed trays and with its high speed MAP packing of meat and poultry products, is built to meet the most demanding requirements of the market. It can be integrated into process automation and combines high production speeds with high performance levels.


ULMA’s range of TFS Thermoformers use specially designed top films for enhancing the product’s appearance and extending their shelf life. Since teaming up with global packaging giant Sealed Air, the revolutionary Cryovac® Darfresh® vacuum pack reduces waste and offers a cost-effective, vacuum skin consumer pack that fits around the product like a second skin.

Other key benefits include moisture retention, the ability to customise pack shape and dimensions as well as the option to display the pack vertically.


During the two day event, ULMA’s technical team will be available to answer questions on various advanced skin, film and wrapping technologies that can be installed as part of an automatic packing line, or as a standalone manual feeding solution. ULMA’s UK Managing Director, Chris Pickles, said: “We are delighted to be showcasing the latest developments in meat and poultry packaging equipment. Visitors to our stand will be staggered by the vast range of innovative packaging machines and technology we can offer. Meatup provides the ideal platform for visitors to interact with our experts and discover the benefits of the customised solutions available from ULMA.”
