The unique G.Mondini tray sealing technology is applied to pre-made trays to increase output vs. standard tray skin and to operate at speeds comparable to standard MAP systems.

The Darfresh® on Tray vacuum skin packaging solution has been designed to gently wrap around every contour of the food product, without distorting its shape. The top web and tray are then heat-sealed together right up to the edge of the product to produce a securely and hygienically sealed pack. All these features deliver an outstanding pack presentation - increasing consumer visual appeal and product sales.

Thanks to the G.Mondini Trave tray sealer range specifically designed to run Darfesh® on tray, operational costs are reduced whilst efficiency is increased by means of a new patented top film cutting technology and an unrivalled vacuum process, which makes the whole process faster and more efficient than standard tray skin and more sustainable with less material consumption.

The Darfresh® on Tray vacuum skin packaging solution is well suited for case-ready and e-Commerce, across different market segments, ranging from fresh red meat, poultry and seafood to processed meat, dairy and alternative protein.
