Benefits of Vacuum Packing

Diseases and bacteria run rampant whenever dealing with raw food. How do you ensure that it stays clean and fresh for longer? Vacuum-packing or vacuum sealing is the answer. Unless you're going to cook the piece of meat today, it's best to store it in a vacuum bag, and here are some reasons why.

  • Vacuum sealing can help extend your meats’ shelf life if stored properly in the fridge or freezer.
  • By storing vacuum sealed meat in the freezer, it won’t get freezer burn, stays fresh for longer and can be stored for 15-20 months.
  • Buy in bulk and save money – Save money on meats by buying in bulk from your local butcher or shop, vacuum seal and freeze.
  • Meat tastes better – Vacuum sealing holds in the moisture, juices and flavour of the food. You’ll notice the difference in taste.
  • Vacuum sealed keeps meat safe – Vacuum sealing removes most of the oxygen, preventing chemical reactions triggered by oxygen that cause food to spoil. It also prevents bacteria build-up that can ruin foods.
  • Save on space! Vacuum sealed meat takes up less space in your fridge or freezer, allowing more room for bulk products or other items.
