Improving Product Quality and Profits in the Food Industry
The food industry is highly competitive, and to truly maximize your return on investment it’s crucial that you cut costs and optimize revenues. Food waste is the largest threat to food industry profitability.
In fact, according to Value Chain Management International, $31 billion worth of food is wasted in Canada each year, which is approximately 40 percent of all food that is produced yearly in the country.
That’s why food gases are crucial.
Simcoe Gases is a leading supplier of food-grade gases in the Greater Toronto Area and Central Ontario, with a range of industrial gas products that will protect your products and boost your profits.
How Does it Work?
Food grade gases are used in modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) to extend the shelf life of products without the need to use chemical food preservatives. This method uses CO2, nitrogen and oxygen to slow the natural deterioration of the food product, and can be used on items such as meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.
The gas used will depend entirely on the type of product, packaging materials and storage temperature of the items.
That’s why Simcoe Gases supplies a wide range of food gases that vary from pure form gases to a mixture of each. Simply let us know the type of food items that you are looking to preserve, and we will be able to provide you with a gas that enhances the quality of your food product and preserves it longer for increased profits - all while focusing on food safety at the same time.
