SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS WHEN PACKAGING POTATO CHIPS
Yes there are. If you want standup pouches for potato chips, make sure you talk to us about a process called nitrogen flushing. In this process, we fill your chip bags with nitrogen so that they can stay safe. Here are some reasons why you should opt for nitrogen flushing:
- Nitrogen keeps your chips safe from oxygen. You might not know this, but oxygen is the number one reason behind the rotting of food products.
- When the pouchbags are full of nitrogen, customers can detect punctures or tears easily. Punctured bags allow the air to move in and out. If the packet has less air than normal, it means the packet should not be bought.
- Nitrogen creates a cushion around the chips so they don’t break easily. Nitrogen flushing is important for fragile snacks so that they can stay intact. Customers want to buy chips, not their broken parts.
Nitrogen flushing is not an expensive process. Our specially designed machines just suck out the oxygen and fill the standup pouch with nitrogen – it takes just a few seconds.
So if you want to package chips or any other crispy snack, make sure you use the process of nitrogen flushing. It will keep your chips safe and increase your sales.
