Food safety and freshness are top priorities in retail grocery meat, poultry, seafood and produce departments. Every effort is made throughout the supply chain to maintain the freshness, quality and safety of packaged meat, poultry, seafood and produce products.
To help food processors and retail grocers maintain the safety, appearance, and marketability of packaged meat, poultry, seafood and produce, Novipax launched XtendaPak, a revolutionary active absorbent.
Developed by a team of food industry and packaging experts, XtendaPak maintains the food product’s organoleptic features – smell, color and texture – through a technologically advanced, proprietary system.
Moisture from the packaged protein is absorbed by the XtendaPak absorbent pad, which then produces a steady stream of CO2 gas inside the package.
CO2 gas “wraps” itself around the protein creating an envelope that helps retard the growth of spoilage bacteria present on the surface of the meat. Plus, a second anti-microbial ingredient reduces the bacteria growth inside the absorbent pad and in the purge.
