Cryovac Freshness Plus Active Barrier

Cryovac® Freshness Plus® active packaging technologies are engineered to extend shelf life, maximize flavor and product color, and reduce confinement odors - all through packaging.


  • Minimizes or eliminates the need for preservatives for "cleaner" label options
  • Longer shelf life enables processors to increase sales through new, wider or different distribution channels
  • The scavenging polymer is invisible to metal detectors allowing processors to use metal detection systems after the packaging operation
  • Protects against light-catalyzed oxidation so products can be displayed in clear packages
  • Increasing product shelf life reduces costs such as spoilage allowance, end of code date write-downs, and returns
  • Since scavenger is invisible, OS films do not alter the look of the package, and offer shoppers a clear view of the product inside
  • Improved oxygen protection inhibits the growth of mold and aerobic microorganisms improving the microbial quality of the product


  • Smoked and processed meats, cheeses, baked goods, fresh pasta and dry food products such as coffee, nuts, drink and baking mixes, and other snack foods


  • Available as rollstock, can be used as heat sealing lidding film on thermoformed packages, trays, bowls, cups and tubs
  • Can be trap printed
