Sealed Air subject matter experts discuss the four cornerstones of meat packaging automation and how the latest technology in automation and digital packaging – like traceability and product authentication – can help return predictability, consistency and quality to transform your operations.
Across the meat, poultry and dairy processing industries, workforce turnover rates and rising labour costs are making the management of day-to-day operations almost impossible to predict. Lack of available labour coupled with line inefficiencies and low utilisation of equipment means that on any given day, a variety of functions around your plant could be under-performing, or worse yet, left undone, and costing you more than just throughput.
Leveraging automated equipment is your means to create operational and workforce efficiencies that remove process variation and yield consistent results every time. That is why today, automation is no longer just about enhancing your operation, automation is your means to protect it. Less quality rejects, less equipment damage and less manual labour equals more predictability.
From loading equipment, vacuum systems and package treatment to product intelligence and handling, we deliver a fully automated packaging hall. Machine compatibility and flexibility allow workforce and production efficiencies with solutions that work hard...but aren’t hard to work.
We’ve set the industry standard for packaging all types of fresh proteins. Together, equipment and materials deliver superior shrink and toughness to ensure great optics and product showcasing while holding up to the rigors of the food supply chain.
Connected, smart equipment puts data to work, helping you minimise waste and deliver productivity savings. By use of our SEE™ Smart Link technology, you can leverage data that helps inform and drive optimisation to help reduce downtime and improve yield rates.
Powered by SEE™ Automation and built from the legacy of our successful CRYOVAC® brand 8600 series, this digitally integrated rotary vacuum packaging system is the backbone of a fully automated packaging line for fresh beef, pork, lamb and poultry, as well as ready-to-eat or processed meats and cheese.

The CRYOVAC® brand AutoLoad 75 is a fully automatic high-speed bag loader designed for dairy, and smoked and processed meats. Smooth operation eliminates the repetitive and labour-intensive process of loading product into bags by featuring automatic advancing and opening of taped bags and a high-speed belt to insert product into the opened bag.
The CRYOVAC® brand AutoLoad R2 is a high-speed robotic bag loader designed for the fresh beef, pork, lamb, veal and poultry industries. In addition to eliminating repetitive and manual product loading into bags, the machine is equipped with two bag presenters. This robotic bag loader enables accurate bag selection by transferring product into one of two bag options allowing for optimal package selection.
