TC Transcontinental Packaging

To Taylor's point, consumer-facing packaging
for bone-in cuts requires materials and designs
that appeal to today's choosy customers.
"The greatest challenge processors need to
address with bone-in packaging is to provide
excellent bone puncture protection and barrier
while still presenting a visually appealing
product on the retail shelf," he said.
He cited TC Transcontinental Packaging's
Clearshield shrink bag that provides toughness
without an unsightly patch and that is available
with 10-color printing on the front and back.
Clearshield shrink bags can be used on St.
Louis-style ribs that require the best possible
optics for retail presentation as well as a full
bone-in pork loin that must have puncture
resistance, Taylor noted.
Cryovac has also made improvements
to packaging meat and poultry products
with aesthetics in mind along with strength.
Cryovac's OptiDure packaging line for highabuse products is designed for optimal clarity
and the company also offers a clear patch for
bone-in items that can be used to enhance (or
at least not detract from) retail appearance.
Recently, consumer interest in more
sustainable packaging has extended to the
meat case. According to Taylor, the thinner
gauge of the Clearshield bag provides a
sustainability benefit and helps processors in
their efforts to reduce packaging materials
and have a better product-to-package
ratio. Many, if not most, other packaging

Saving on labor and costs is always a priority
for meat and poultry plants, but it's especially
true in today's environment, with ongoing
COVID-19 issues and economic uncertainties.
Among other benefits, Taylor said the
Clearshield packaging solution works well with
challenging cuts like pork butts and picnics,
allowing processors to reduce rework while
maintaining the desired presentation. TC
Transcontinental also has introduced in-line
bagger machines that allow processors to
create their own Clearshield bags on demand
directly on their packaging lines.
At Cryovac, Rosinski reported that recent
consumer demand for more bone-in multipacks
- largely driven by people staying and cooking
more at home - has resulted in more pounds
being moved through the plant with less labor.
He also underscores the circumstances
that are leading toward the greater use of
technologies in meat and poultry plants.
"As we work towards the more highly
automated meat plant of the future, we will
leverage our Cryovac TBG Bags as well as
our expanding offering of patchless highabuse bags to ensure our materials work in
harmony with our automation solutions," he
said, adding that the pandemic is having an
impact on the embrace of automation. "Our
experience with COVID-19 in meat plants has
highlighted the need to re-double our efforts
towards realizing automation and a touch-free
packaging floor. Cryovac brand TBG bags are
an important enabler that will help us make
that a reality."
Mark McCarney, marketing manager for
Amcor Flexibles North America, Oshkosh,
Wis., agreed that automation will be a part of
efforts to cut costs and find new efficiencies.
"With today's complex operational
challenges and unprecedented cost pressures
squeezing profits in categories already
experiencing razor-thin margins, Amcor is
helping to solve these by delivering automated
packing solutions fit for the future of essential
fresh food manufacturers," he reported.
Amcor is offering automated solutions
as an alternative to conventional pre-made
