SIATE, represented in Australia by Emrich Industries is a packaging machinery company that provides sealing machines with the provision for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP).
MAP's benefits for the food industry include significant increases in shelf life, minimisation of waste, natural colour retention, high quality and enhanced presentation of products as well as the reduced need for artificial preservatives.
Siate produces a number of systems including semi or fully-automatic rotary and inline machines for preformed trays, bowls, pots and buckets.
Applications include fresh red meats, poultry, pork, seafoods, smallgoods, ready meals, sandwiches, oriental specialties, frozen food, vegetables, fruits, cheeses, pet-foods, etc.
Recent Emrich Siate installations in Australia include the SRA-2SM rotary sealer for fresh pasta in New South Wales and the SLA-1G in-line sealer for fresh herbs in Queensland.
