Flexible packaging manufacturer Temkin launches single layer wicketed bags with modified atmosphere packaging technology for extended shelf life of fresh produce, featuring hermetic seals, microperforation, custom tailoring options

PAYSON, Utah , October 21, 2011 (press release) – Temkin’s modified atmosphere packaging technology is now available in single layer wicketed bags, enabling customers to extend the shelf life of additional produce items.

With optional hermetic seals and patented laser microperforation technology, Temkin’s wicketed bags can effectively and affordably extend the shelf life of fresh produce. Temkin Sales Manager, Joe Bradford, said, “It is great to expand our product line by adding a product such as this.”

“This advancement helps deliver cost savings that place controlled atmosphere packaging within reach of lower-margin goods,” said Bradford, “We are looking forward to better serving customers by giving them more options for their produce items.”

In addition to featuring optional hermetic seals and laser microperforation, Temkin’s new wicketed bags can be custom tailored to include zippers, bottom gussets, and a variety of wicket styles, providing added convenience and value. The benefits of Temkin’s laser microperforation technology (in partnership with Windham Packaging, LLC) were previously only available through the use of high-barrier laminated films.
