                THE ADVANTAGES OF VACUUM PACKAGING

      TYPICAL SHELF LIFE OF VACUUM PACKAGED PRODUCTS:
All vacuum packaged foods must be top quality; fresh, and prepared in a sanitary method in order to reach optimum
shelf life. In addition, shelf life can be affected by acidity, pH level, temperature, and ingredients. Vacuum Packaging is
not a substitute for canning. Perishable foods must be refrigerated.
Some typical shelf lives of Vacuum Packaged refrigerated products, as compared to normal refrigeration, are:

Estimated Refrigerated Life* Under Controlled Atmosphere 32° to 35° F -
