DO YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF EVOLUTION?
We present the new “OPENVAC” way of packaging and preserving food. It is a new packaging system that has broken away from the ties of traditional methods of food preservation. “OPENVAC” is a package that uses high vacuum to achieve a closure that is perfectly hermetically sealed, yet still maintains a simple opening mechanism with no sharp edges or elements. With almost no effort needed to open it, the risk of splashes or breakage of the opening mechanism is eliminated. In addition, when the top tab is pulled and the vacuum breaks, you will hear a characteristic sound letting you know the food has been properly preserved. This innovative package with a unique design is perfect for emphasizing special products within a product line.
By completely eliminating oxygen, we can avoid changes in food flavor and color and prevent the decrease or elimination of vitamins and trace elements. Therefore, not only have we managed to extend the shelf life of foods, but also ensure they are preserved in a more natural and authentic manner.
The inventor of this new concept for food preservation. Engineering services supplier to canning and food packaging industries, specialised in the design of high vacuum processes. Company led by Jean larroche, an expert engineer in food can packaging processes, Director for 20 years of the CTCPA France, Centre Technique de la Conservation des Produits Agricoles, and precursor of different solutions for the conservation of food all over the world.

By eliminating all the air, there is no risk of oxidation to the food, which lengthens its shelf life. In addition, it is not necessary to add preservatives or to immerse the product in oil or any other liquid medium.
The “OPENVAC” system requires a shorter exposure time to high temperatures during sterilization and pasteurization processes, and reduces the use of salt for preservation purposes, thereby retaining the vitamins and minerals in the foods. This ensures the quality of the product with all its naturally occurring elements…. It’s healthier and you’ll be amazed by the difference in flavor!
DIFFERENT FORMATS AND SIZES
“OPENVAC” is offered in different formats that are adequate for any capacity and size requirements. It can be used for any type of product: dried fruits, pre-made dishes, cured products, products preserved in oil, water, in syrup, pickled….
Because the thermal processes are shorter, this implies significant energy savings. And on the other hand, the massive reduction in a protective liquid medium implies a large reduction in waste.
The packaging design and its preservation system with less liquid medium optimices transport, enabling more product to be sent in each shipment. In this way we are reducing our carbon footprint in relation to this activity and we are making our small contribution to preserving the environment.
So all of this... how do we do it?
We extract all the air from inside the packaging, creating a high vacuum atmosphere.
This vacuum help for temperatures to be raised quickly without damaging the food, which allows us to shorten the pasteurisation and sterilisation times typical of conventional packaging.
The extreme reduction of covering liquid, as oil or brine enables us to achieve foods packaged that retain their natural characteristics.
We fix an tap on the lid that guarantees the perfect sealing and an easy opening.
But above all, we save energy.
