Project Description

Packaging of cheeses with holes in Austria

Starting situation:

Our customer is a top-flight supplier of dairy products in the Austrian Alps. After the salt bath, the fresh cheese products are packaged for maturing. After maturing, the products are opened, cut into portions and are then packaged again.

Challenges:

Since the cheese is fresh and has holes in it, the products must be packaged particularly gently. Nonetheless, the shrink bags must be quite tight to avoid any mold formation within the packaging.

Our solution:

The customer purchased a soft vacuum packaging line from us. It consists of a GK501 Soft plus shrink tank and dryer. The customer is especially pleased with the system because it is so rugged and because the products can be packaged flawlessly.
