- HOW TO CREATE A VACUUM-PACK -
The vacuum-pack preservation provides very long-term expiration dates, with no preservatives at all. This is possible removing all the air from the package.
The packaging process takes place in three main phases:

- 1 -
a sheet of specific-for-food plastic is folded and closed on the bottom and on the back thanks to a heated press.

- HOW DOES VACUUM PRESERVATION WORKS? -

The vacuum-packaging eliminates any type of gas from the inside of the pack, so also all the oxygen. Oxygen is one of the main causes of food spoilage, since it is responsible for the oxidation and it is of vital importance for the aerobic microorganisms. So the vacuum prevents the development of bacteria and aerobic microorganisms responsible for the degeneration of food. It also stops all alterations linked to the action of oxygen (oxidation) and air in general, as the gradual loss of the organoleptic properties of a food.
