It’s no secret, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and the food and beverage industry is banking on it. In a recent study by the NPD Group in Chicago, breakfast and morning snack consumption in and away from home is forecasted to grow by 5 percent through 2019.
Accompanying that growth is the increasing demand for easy-to-eat breakfast snacks. As more consumers eat on-the-go meals, the consumer packaged good industry is responding by creating more wholesome breakfast items in small convenient, single-serve packs.
What does that mean for you in 2017? Packaging of items like this will be even more important and ChemTec’s team of experts can customize solutions for you. Here’s how:
EFV MRS and LPH 375 Series
To keep food fresh, packaging is key. New advances in packaging have improved the quality of freshness and reduces waste by using specialty gases and better packaging seals.
ChemTec’s flow monitors, flow meters and excess flow valves are frequently used in food and beverage processing plants. A burst of nitrogen during the sealing stage in both dry and liquid packaging processes protects the freshness of the food while creating a tight seal. ChemTec’s Excess Flow Valve Manual Reset Series installed on specialty gas lines help detect line failure and prevent an excess flow of gas in the event of a line rupture. ChemTec’s LPH 375 Series installed on packaging equipment monitors bursts of gas released into the packaging before the sealing stage.
