Multisorb Technologies (multisorb.com) will introduce its complete system solution for extending the shelf life of jerky products at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE 2016) in Atlanta, GA, January 26-28, 2016. The Multisorb JerkyFresh system includes both oxygen absorbers to extend shelf life and dispensing equipment engineered specifically for jerky packaging lines. In-booth demonstrations of Multisorb's dispensing equipment will be featured.
"With the continued popularity of jerky products, food processors need a complete, cost-effective system to protect their jerky from spoilage and flavor loss," says Bob Sabdo - market leader North America food and beverage packaging. "Multisorb's JerkyFresh system offers oxygen absorbers designed to provide shelf-life extension beyond other packaging methods and corresponding dispensing equipment for efficient operations."
JerkyFresh oxygen absorbing packets are designed specifically to keep jerky products with a water activity level less than 0.85 fresh longer than atmospheric, gas flushing, or vacuum packaging alone. Available in a variety of sizes, the oxygen absorbers irreversibly absorb oxygen inside sealed packaging to less than 0.01% and maintain this level, keeping the jerky fresh and extending its shelf life. JerkyFresh oxygen absorbers are manufactured in the USA using food grade materials in a CGMP compliant facility, certified to FSSC 22000 Food Safety Management System, a GFSI recognized global initiative.
Multisorb's dispensing equipment is also manufactured in the USA and designed to seamlessly integrate with virtually any packaging line. Systems are available for low- to high-speed applications. In-booth demonstrations of Multisorb's APA® Model 1000 will provide attendees a firsthand opportunity to see how the dispensing equipment works.
