XtendaPak, a Revolutionary Solution to Increase Shelf Life


With Seafood Expo North America only a week and a half away, what better time to reintroduce one of our flagship active absorbents, XtendaPak, to the food packaging industry. XtendaPak is a revolutionary pad solution designed to extend the shelf life of fresh meat, poultry, and seafood products. In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of XtendaPak and how it can help food retailers and distributors improve their bottom line.

XtendaPak is a unique packaging system that combines active release of CO2 with high-performance absorbency to create an optimal atmosphere for fresh meat, poultry, and seafood. Our innovative technology is designed to reduce microbial growth, which is the primary factor that contributes to spoilage and the degradation of fresh food products.

According to a study by the Natural Resources Defense Council, approximately 40% of all food produced in the United States goes uneaten. In the case of seafood products, food waste occurs due to spoilage, contamination, and improper storage.

By extending the shelf life of fresh meat, poultry, and seafood, XtendaPak helps food retailers and distributors reduce waste and increase profitability. The longer shelf life of these products allows them to remain fresh and appealing for longer, which means that they can be sold for a longer period of time. This not only improves the bottom line but also helps to reduce the environmental impact of food waste.

In addition to the economic benefits of XtendaPak, there are also important food safety benefits. By reducing microbial growth, XtendaPak helps to ensure that fresh meat, poultry, and seafood products remain safe for consumption. This is particularly important in the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as consumers are more concerned than ever about food safety and hygiene.

XtendaPak is available in a range of sizes and configurations, making it adaptable to a variety of fresh food products. Our team of experts can work with you to develop a customized packaging solution that meets your specific needs and requirements. We understand that every customer is unique, and that’s why we offer customized packaging solutions that are tailored to your specific needs.

In conclusion, XtendaPak is a game-changing packaging solution for the food industry, offering economic and food safety benefits that can help food retailers and distributors improve their bottom line.
