Advanced Barrier Extrusions (ABX) offers high barrier and breathable packaging films for meat, specially designed for both raw and cooked meat, and either fresh or frozen applications.

Given the stringent USDA regulations in the meat industry, ABX prides ourselves on delivering the highest quality packaging films for meat, to meet or exceed industry standards. We strive to deliver dependable, cost-effective, high-barrier, or breathable films for extended shelf-life and product protection. 

High Barrier Packaging Films for Meat:

High barrier films provide excellent oxygen and moisture transmission rates (OTR & MVTR), and are typically used in fresh applications where a barrier is critical to extending shelf life. Our packaging materials are engineered to protect your meat products, extend the shelf life, and improve visual appeal. 

Breathable Packaging Films for Meat:

ABX offers breathable films to allow O2 transmission while maintaining good moisture barrier and are typically used in frozen applications for red meat (allows bloom). Our frozen films are strong and durable to withstand low temperatures (-40 degrees Fahrenheit) without cracking or compromising package integrity.

Typical Uses: 

  • Vertical Form Fill & Seal for shredded, cubed and ground proteins
  • Horizontal Form Fill & Seal for steak, poultry and other proteins
