State-of-the-art vacuum and skin packaging machines put a Montreal-based meat processor on the fast track to growth in the retail space.

In this video, listen to Terry Tountas, General Manager at Alpha Meat Packers, talk about the value-add offered by the MULTIVAC R126 thermoforming packaging machine and the R275 MF skin-packaging machine. “Our customers are demanding value-add, case-ready packaging. We’ve become packaging specialists, and our partner is MULTIVAC”, says Terry.

Terry adds, “The machine that impresses me the most is the MULTIVAC R126 because of its flexibility and speed. Almost immediately, we’ve had about 40% growth on that line. In fact, we’re considering purchasing a second one.”

Eric Boivin, Director of Maintenance at Alpha Meat Packers, provides insights into how each machine packages and labels the product so that it is ready to go in the box. He also demonstrates the R275 MF skin-pack machine that delivers a complete seal around bone-in pork chops for outstanding shelf appeal and long best-before dates.

Eric adds, “The R126 was up and running in just over a week, and we didn’t miss a beat. Production increased from 24 packs a minute to 40 packs a minute. The HMI is intuitive, easy to use, and stores up to 500 recipes.”
