Resealable Packaging for Beemster cheese can only be packaged by an Omori Flow Wrapper.

This is due to the unique resealing system that is integrated into this machine. After the products have been guided into the foil tunnel, the folding unit creates the resealable flap, and immediately the closing label is applied to the top and the final seal is made. This packaging technique guarantees that each packaging has a uniform appearance with a straight resealable flap and evenly placed label. The re-closing takes place at the top where the labelling device is provided.

To give the Beemster cheese the right shelf life after packaging, Omori has also custom-engineered a special fumigation system into this Flow Wrapper. The gassing of the cheese in the foil, and the responsible sealing of the foil has given Beemster’s the certainty and confidence that the quality of their products is guaranteed after packaging.

Resealable Packaging

beemster cheeseAt present, sliced cheese and meat products are often packaged in deep-drawn packaging in Germany. In the Netherlands, resealable packaging has been dominant in supermarkets for many years. Major chains such as Albert Heijn, Aldi and Jumbo have embraced this proven concept. Omori machines have produced this resealable packaging for sliced cheese and meat products since 1998. The SeloPack™ packaging concept, developed by Omori, uses sealing technology that is so stable that it remains gas-tight even at high speeds. Consumers are also extremely satisfied as it avoids wasting food, ensures that the product remains fresh for longer, and is also easy to use.

Resealable packaging weighs around 10 grams*. In contrast, a conventional deep-drawn pack weighs double this, at around 20 grams. If you produce 100 packs per minute – 8 hours a day/250 days a year – this will result in around 240,000 kg of plastic annually with a thermoforming machine. If the product is packaged in the SeloPack™ using the Omori Flow Wrapper, this is 120,000 kg. This is a saving of no less than 50%!
