Packaging considerations for meal kit businesses
Bringing fresh ingredients to the end consumers will require intricate supply chain logistics. There are certain foods like meat and fresh veggies that are highly prone to spoilage, so they must be packaged well to preserve freshness and lower the chances of cross-contamination. Other ingredients like sauce and spice blends may also need separate packaging to prevent product leakage during transport. All these items have to be meticulously weighed and packaged in accurate amounts to make sure that the meal can be complete and served in a consumer’s home without compromising the taste, quality, and nutrition value.
How meal kit manufacturers deal with packaging
Most meal kit companies package their products by hand using manual labor or outsourcing contract packagers. But for companies who have a higher volume of products, hand packing easily turns inefficient and outsourcing becomes costly too. As such, meal kit companies are now warming up to the idea of using packaging automation to lower their expenses, gain control over their supply chain, and streamline the packaging process for higher efficiency and profits. Some of the most common packaging automation solutions for meal kits and ingredients include:
Meat and fresh-cut produce
Vertical form fill and seal packaging machines, or VFFS machines, in short, helps provide maximum packaging speed and precision while also delivering optimum access to machine parts for better sanitation and cleaning.
Dry ingredients such as rice are best packaged using VFFS machines since these types of packaging machinery can operate easier and quicker with little customization.
Spices and sauces
Stick and sachet packaging machines are designed to form, fill, and seal small packets of ingredients with speed and accuracy, which works well for spices and sauces.
