The advantages of a Henkelman for you


Longer shelf life

The vacuum-sealing of food reduces the growth of bacteria and extends shelf life, without having to add preservatives. Vacuum-packed products retain their weight, flavour and aroma. They also have a longer shelf life compared to refrigeration and retain their quality when frozen. 

Packaging in plain sight

The Henkelman table-top models are ideal for placing on your counter or on your market stall. By packaging your products in plain sight, your customers will be able to see exactly what happens to their fresh products. You are also providing your customers with hygienic packaging that also ensure their products can be kept at home without loss of quality.  

Optimal hygiene

Vacuum-packing your products allows you to preserve them safely. With a Henkelman you will meet all local hygiene standards. All machines are easy to keep clean and meet all European and North American requirements in terms of safety, health and environmental protection.

Frequently asked questions


Why vacuum pack?

Vacuum packing results in a longer shelf life. This is because the oxygen is removed during the vacuuming process. This slows down the ripening process. The vacuum bag also gives your product air and liquid-tight protection against external factors. 


Can I place a table top vacuum packing machine in a shop?

Yes. Both the dimensions and looks of Henkelman table top vacuum packing machines make them perfect to be placed in plain sight, the pump of a table top model only runs when you are vacuuming a product. This keeps excess noise to a minimum. 


For how many hours a day can I use a table top vacuum packing machine?

You can use a table top vacuum packing machine for up to 5 hours a day according to the guidelines.
