Retail Bone Cuts – which is the right packaging?

- Oct 12, 2018-

IPE is supporting case-ready, bone-in meat and poultry with its BD series of patchless, high-barrier shrink bags that contain multiple layers of nylon-based film for added protection.


“Processors want bags that are strong but also have more eye appeal so they are putting greater value on clarity and products with attractive print.

Demand for sturdy bone-in packaging also is coming from foodservice operators, hotels, and consumers who want to reheat pre-cooked items without removing the food from its original bags. Such dishes can be prepared faster, often marinate better and are more tender when reheated.


Cook-in bags that users can boil or roast bone-in meat and poultry in also are becoming more popular as processors and merchants take steps to minimize the handling of meat to reduce the threat of contamination.

The bags contain high-oxygen and moisture barriers that are designed to maximize shelf life, and have high-shrink multilayer coextrusions laminated together for greater strength.

It is essential that case-ready, bone-in products have tight shrink to be visually appealing and help minimize the threat of juices seeping out of the beef.

 “Case-ready bags also need to be puncture resistant, that is especially important for products that are shipped to merchant sites that don’t have in-store butchers on staff, as those retailers are not prepared to repackage leakers.”

Hot Product Boneguard Shrink Bags is designed especially for bone-                  in products, either fresh or frozen, with high puncture resistance to avoid leakers during transportation and storage.
