Food Preservation & Sous Vide

Vacuum packing is a method of packaging, storing,

presenting and then cooking food…

Some food types need to be stored in an airless environment, usually in air-tight packaging to reduce the growth of micro?organisms. When vacuum packing most of the bacteria is expelled from the bag as the air is removed, providing a very safe and hygienic method of storage.

Vacuum packing also helps maintain the product quality and size. For example, in meat items such as steaks, the blood can’t leak out and the meat doesn’t dry out so the product weight is maintained. Vacuum packing food can extend its life by three to five times.
