Let’s fight food waste
of food waste happens in the supply chain due to improper storage and handling, poor refrigeration or spoilage during transport. Enter, vacuum packaging!
We believe every action counts, especially when it comes to reducing food waste.
By vacuum sealing!
By pre-portioning food and using only what you need, you save food, lots of food.
We are commited to providing reliable and durable vacuum sealers so you can save food and help protect the environment.
There are many ways you can reduce food waste and your carbon footprint. Here are few.
It may sound overly simple, but it’s true: buy less food and you’ll waste less food.
When buying in large quantities, be sure to vacuum seal the extra amounts.
Freezing extends shelf life by several months, but be sure to vacuum seal your freezables first.
Vacuum packaging will prevent freezer burn, and so keep your bulk buy better for longer!
Instead of letting your extras go bad, why not donate them to your local food bank? Sharing reduces food waste and helps people in need. Since the start of the pandemic, one in five working families in Canada has reported going hungry. Sharing not only reduces food waste, it helps others who need it most.
As your very last resort, extra food should be returned to the soil, through compost.
Almost all your food waste can be put in the brown bin.
Not sure what should go in the compost?
Vacuum packaging increases the shelf life of foods, and not just a little: 2 to 5 times over! Check out our guide that explains how long you can safely store vacuum-sealed foods.
