Perfectly packaged cheese
Vacuum packaging cheese plays an important role in extending the shelf life of this tasty dairy product. Removing air using our step vacuum (available as on option in our Advance Control System) creates the perfect conditions for retaining all the characteristic flavours, aromas and textures of various types of cheeses. Whether you are a small cheese producer selling cheese directly to customers or packaging cheese on an industrial scale: vacuum packaging offers many practical advantages in addition to professional packaging.
Which type of cheese can be vacuum sealed?
Advantages of vacuum sealing cheese
Longer shelf life
Removing air from the packaging ensures that cheese remains fresh and tasty. The absence of air limits the growth of bacteria, which means the product has a longer shelf life.
Protection against odours
Some types of cheese have a strong odour. This odour can be overwhelming and can also be transferred to other products. Airtight packaging protects your cheese from both absorbing and releasing odours.
Prevention of dehydration
Vacuuming ensures that the moisture present in the cheese is retained. Vacuum sealed cheese does not dry out and remains as deliciously creamy as the day it was made.
Maturing is possible
Some types of cheese can continue to mature inside the vacuum packaging. This contributes to the development of flavour and texture.
Less food waste
Because vacuum sealed products have a longer shelf life, they can be stored for longer and your customers can consume the cheese for longer without it ending up in the bin.

Frequently asked questions
That depends on the product. There is hardly any effect on pure liquids such as water. Is liquid part of your product or is water incorporated into the product? Then it is possible that the water will evaporate when it boils. This can dry the product out. A composite product containing liquid can also curdle.
This depends on the dimensions of the vacuum bag (or the product size) you are using and the quantity of products you want to package per time period.
There are several settings you can adjust to change the cycle speed of our automatic vacuum packing machines. These may also have an effect on the final packaging result.
