Nichrome: Proven Experts in Food Packaging
The global food packaging market is vast, mature and growing at an exciting pace. Packaging companies serving the sectors of food, beverages, personal care and pharmaceutical are expected to do well in the present pandemic situation, with changing demand patterns, government measures, and stockpiling pushing up demand for packaged food products.
The food packaging market is broadly segmented into 3 categories based on product: rigid, semi-rigid and flexible. While rigid packaging has the largest market share, the flexible packaging market is growing exponentially due to technological advancements. Moreover, flexible packaging offers several advantages: it uses less material, needs less energy during formation, produces lesser green house gases during manufacturing. Being lightweight & unbreakable, it is economical to pack, store and transport.

Nichrome offers a wide range of food packaging machines, besides liquid packaging machines for products such as milk, juice, water. Let’s take a look at some of the different technologies Nichrome offers in food packaging machines:

Whether it is liquid like milk, juice and water, viscous like ketchup, ghee and edible oil, granular like rice, pulses and sugar, powder like masalas, coffee and dehydrated milk, solid like nuts, namkeen or cookies – Nichrome has a VFFS machine for you.
Nichrome’s VFFS machines are versatile and can be used for diverse applications by changing the filling system. Cleaning and changeovers are easy and fast.
These are VFFS machines with multiple lanes or channels, and are generally used for smaller pouch sizes. For small sachets and stickpacks of salt, ketchup, sugar, coffee, dairy whitener, condiments, etc. which are popular in the travel, hospitality and food business, Nichrome’s VFFS multilane machines offer speed, accuracy of filling and reliable sealing.
