Nowadays, the changes that are taking place in the way of life are remarkable. The pace of everyday life has increased and the way in which different foods are consumed has changed, with consumers showing a particular preference for small and easily maintainable packaging.
Today there is an increased interest from consumers for foods that in addition to nutritional organoleptic characteristics offer special health benefits. These requirements combined with the constant awareness of how diet affects the health and desire of consumers for a better standard of living, created in the market the need for healthy snacks.
It is known that table olives are food of high nutritional value and contain a very high percentage of unsaturated fatty acids, oleic acid, palmitic acid, linoleic, etc., while many of the fermenting microorganisms contained in olives have probiotic properties.
The creation of innovative products in impressive packages is moving in this direction. A variety of flavor combinations in “snack” type packages, without brine, without preservatives, with a modified atmosphere that retains the organoleptic characteristics – the taste, aroma and texture of the small doypack bags and pillow bags are now available everywhere. A decade ago, no one could have imagined that in their available options for a healthy, snack would be small bags containing delicious olives.
For a decade now, the company AGROSPARTA has been providing high quality products worldwide in a variety of packages, always respecting the requirements of the market and the consumer’s needs. Approaching these new needs and adapting to market trends and in the context of continuous improvement, evolution and development of new innovative products, AGROSPARTA presents to the public the new acquisition of the company, the packaging machine of the doypacks and pillow bags.
In modified atmosphere packaging (MAP packaging) the ambient air inside the packaging is replaced by a product-adapted gas mixture to maintain the shape, color and freshness of the product. The modified atmosphere usually consists of carbon dioxide, nitrogen and oxygen.
The main advantage of packaging in a modified atmosphere is to ensure the longer life of the product. In addition, the quality of the product is ensured, the use of gases in the packaging avoids enzymatic and biochemical alteration, as well as avoiding the growth of bacteria. This means that the taste of the product remains unchanged and the need to use additional chemicals and preservatives is eliminated.
