Starting in 2010 asparagus growers adopted a new packaging method for marketing. Our Delfin flow-pack machines have been there from the beginning and continue to dominate this application.
After 5 years the benefits of flow-pack packaging are well established. The film used in flow-pack equipment extends the shelf life of the product, improves sanitation, and creates peace of mind for the consumer. With modified humidity technology in film, asparagus is kept in an appropriate level of humidity to prevent dehydration and keep them fresh for up to 30 days.
We now have 31 Delfin flow-pack machines in the United States, Mexico, and Peru dedicated to packaging asparagus. The models used for asparagus are the Tucano, Gemini, and Lyra.
If you would like to see what a flow-pack can do or interested in adding another to your assembly check out this video of our bottom seal flow pack, the Lyra.
We are so honored to lend a hand to all of our customers as they advance to a new level in their industry. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to do so!
