Flexible Packaging for Meat & Proteins

Ultimate Visual Appeal

When combined with our state-of-the-art 10 color printing and laminating capabilities, ABX helps your products stand out on the shelf.

Variety to Fit Your Needs

High-performance packaging solutions for processed meats, poultry, fish, pork, deli meats, and jerky, with eco-friendly options to meet consumer demand.

Fresh Meats

Fresh meat like ground beef, bone-in cuts, and poultry have high risk of perishability. Therefore, these products demand the highest performance level and freshness protection. ABX delivers this critical requirement with high barrier flexible packaging, available with low seal, lock seal or peelable sealants.

Frozen Meats

ABX offers multiple product types that withstand low temperatures and provide maximum product protection.

Our breathable films allow oxygen transmission while maintaining a moisture barrier. This packaging offers the strength and durability to withstand freezing temperatures without cracking or compromising package integrity.

Our standard barrier packaging provides standard OTR and MVTR barrier properties and is suitable for frozen applications when high barrier materials are not required.

Frozen meat packaging is available with sealant options like lock seal, low seal, and peelable.

Processed Meats

Processed meats like jerky or sausage require convenience and excellent product protection.

ABX provides 10-color reverse print structures which deliver the appropriate physical property and barrier requirements for your product, in pouch form or rollstock for your horizontal or vertical form fill and seal applications.

 

chub film

Chub Film

ABX’s chub film family of products offers engineered solutions with a wide range of customizable physical property and barrier attributes suitable for pumpable fresh or cooked meats.

Sous Vide

Sous vide cooking is used not only in high-end restaurants but also by home chefs. Sous vide packaging requires superior technology, and ABX delivers with our specially formulated forming and non-forming cook-in films.

* Available in peelable or lock seal and in either high or standard barrier with thickness options ranging from 3 to 13 Mils.

UltraFilm™

Developed in-house at ABX, our new UltraFilm™ solution boasts a unique grade and formula of EVOH, nylon, and PE to provide an extra sturdy film preventing punctures from sharp objects.

UltraFilm Forming and Non-Forming materials provide:

  • “Ultra” Performance for deep draw forming and high abuse applications
  • Cost and labor savings by eliminating the need to use a boneguard wrap
  • Sustainable solutions by offering enhanced barrier properties at lower thickness levels, reducing the amount of plastic going into our landfills.

Trust ABX packaging to protect the quality of meat products, all while maintaining the visual appeal consumers demand.

case study

Case Study: Wolverine Packing Co.

The Problem:

Wolverine Packing Co. faced two issues on its customer lines: packaging pinholes created by auto case packers and palletizers and, secondarily, sealing issues for products with marinades.

The ABX team had two problems to solve: quickly identifying and substituting a better-performing film that could be used on the line without delay, even while Wolverine switched to a supplier—ABX—that offered this new, high-quality packaging film. In addition, the team needed to ensure that film was robust enough to solve the pinhole issue that occurred with auto case packers and palletizers.

The Solution:

Using deep material, product, and machine knowledge, ABX’s technical team engineered a custom solution. In this case, the solution was a “one-off,” customized film made from a new formulation of an Ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer, or EVOH. EVOH has exceptional barrier properties. But not only did the film need to be developed and manufactured, but an alternate sealant needed to be matched to this film. This new sealant had a lower seal initiation for a green bond with liquid applications—like the marinades that had been leaking previously. Read about the results on our blog.

“My experience in customizing solutions along with ABX has been great. Their patient approach and priority to being dependable was well received here at Wolverine Packing.”

Jakeb Brooks, Senior Project Manager, Wolverine Packing Co.
