What is Skin Packaging ?

When vacuum skin packaging the product is placed onto a pre-formed tray. The special skin film is then placed over the product and vacuum applied to evacuate the air. After evacuation, the top film which has specific skinning properties, wraps around the contours of the product and seals to the pre-formed tray.
