PACLIFEPACLIFE

PAC LIFE manufactures a new generation of packaging films, with high permeability, for the conservation of fruits, vegetables and ornamentals.

It is active packaging, that is interacting with the products inside the bag, managing to change the internal atmosphere, increasing the life of fresh fruits and vegetables, which has irrefutably demonstrated in the last export seasons by the Chilean fruit industry.

The technology applied corresponds to a development patented by the company; after the sealing of the PAC LIFE bag, the fruit or vegetable continues to breathe, lowering the concentration of oxygen and increasing carbon dioxide within it. Thus, an atmosphere of equilibrium is achieved inside the container, extending the life of the product, while maintaining its flavor and organoleptic characteristics.

The before technology, characterized by the high permeability of our bags, with plastic adapted to each species, is complemented with the addition of ethylene absorbers in the polymer matrix, to avoid the action of this hormone, that catalizes the senescence and maturation of fruits and vegetables.

The company counts on numerous trials about its plastics and practical results from export to distant markets.
