CHEP Pallecon Solutions has introduced a new range of liner bags designed to improve packaging efficiency and reduce waste in the bulk meat industry.

Addressing the needs of the bulk meat industry’s specific packaging requirements, CHEP’s new liner range ensures food safety through the use of blue tint and a co-extruded film technology superior to commonly-used monolayer films in the Australian and New Zealand liner bag market.

The first company in the market to offer customers the benefits of a liner bag with blue tint on all layers, CHEP has chosen to also use co-extruded films in Australia and New Zealand based on the frequent requests received from their bulk meat customers around the world, according to CHEP Pallecon Solutions business manager, Peter Gaddes.

Bulk meat producers in Australia and New Zealand typically double or triple bag their containers to prevent leaks, resulting in high packaging waste. These companies can avoid the practice of multi-bagging and also save on packaging cost by switching to the new CHEP Pallecon Solutions co-extruded liner bags.

CHEP’s liner bags are produced with multiple, ultra-thin layers within a film that is capable of exceeding the performance characteristics of much thicker mono films in strength, puncture and flex crack resistance. The co-extruded technology utilises multiple extruders to melt and deliver different high quality resin materials in a single extrusion head. The blue tint has been tested independently to ensure it does not migrate into the packaged product.

The process utilises 100% virgin food grade resins and the open top liner bags are FDA, IMS, Kosher and Halal food compliant. The new liner bags can be used in conjunction with CHEP’s existing suite of Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) rental solutions.
