Plastic foil for maturing, dry aging, curing or smoking meat, fish or cheese

We are especially proud of our Tublin® 10, which among other uses is excellent for dryaging meat. Because of its innovative food technology, this bag won a Food & Beverage Product Innovation Award at the NRA Show 2011 in Chicago, USA. The bag is not just a protective packaging material, but a more of a process help, which improves safety and yields and reduces waste. Read more about this here.  The product is also outstanding when it comes to drying and smoking hams (Tublin® 5), maturing cheese, and salting, smoking and drying of fish. The latter product use has been studied at Universitat Politècnica de València showing great results. You can find more information about this here.

We are always expanding our awareness towards other industries, where tubular extruded film products are needed. Please contact us, if you have an idea or a technical question about our products.
