How FreshPax CR Works

The best way to gain the advantages of case-ready meat is to use low-oxygen modified atmosphere packaging combined with the removal of residual oxygen. After placing overwrapped fresh meat trays into a master bag, vacuum and back-flush systems remove air from the master bag and replace it with a gas mixture containing very low oxygen levels. With a FreshPax CR Oxygen Absorbing Packet inserted into the bag, the bag is hermetically sealed. The FreshPax CR Packet absorbs the remaining oxygen in the master bag and oxygen that permeates from the primary meat package. Once the master bag is opened, there is a natural rebloom to the protein.
