ULMA Packaging to present latest meat and poultry packaging technology

Meat and poultry companies are being urged to attend the ULMA Packaging stand at the Meatup exhibition at the end of June, 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.

Meatup is taking place at the National Agricultural Exhibition Centre (NAEC) in Warwickshire, UK, on June 30 and July 1. ULMA’s technical team will be on hand (Hall 2, Stand 712) to provide details of the huge range of packaging solutions it has available, including cook-in-the-bag technology to meet increasing demand from retailers for convenience packaging that helps in the battle against harmful bacteria.

ULMA’s horizontal flowrapper, the Artic Quad, creates Polyester Ovenable Material or Barrier Laminate Material in quad and pillow pack formats with complete modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) for extended shelf-life.

During the two-day event, the company will also provide information on its new generation of TFS Thermoformers – which provide easy access for deep cleaning to help food manufacturers meet and even surpass the most exacting regulatory standards demanded by today’s industry.

Especially suitable for ready meals, fresh meat, processed meat, fish, poultry and pâtés, ULMA’s thermoformers provide protective packaging that fits around the product like a second skin to extend shelf life. Other key benefits include moisture retention, the ability to customise pack shape and display options.

On the tray sealing front, ULMA’s TS 1000 is sure to attract interest, along with the new TSA 875, built to meet the most demanding requirements of the market.

ULMA’s managing director, Chris Pickles, said: “Meatup gives us the ideal platform to explain our high quality packaging equipment for the meat and poultry industry. We are looking forward to a successful show where visitors can discover the range of customised solutions and strength of innovation available from ULMA.”
