Are you looking to develop new products to put on the chilled ready meals market? Keep reading. The Micvac method offers a number of advantages to consumers and producers alike. Let’s take a quick look at the most prominent features and how modern food packaging design and food care makes a difference.
We serve the method, you serve the food
We don’t produce food. Our job is to help you put a new and improved product on the market by providing the necessary know-how and technology.
The patented Micvac method can be divided into two main parts:
- The packaging design – a special combination of materials and design, plus a particularly clever little valve, working together to enable in-pack cooking and pasteurisation.
- The food preparation line – where the trays are filled with fresh ingredients, cooked, pasteurised and chilled in one smooth, continuous process.

The Micvac in-pack cooking solution offers a number of advantages compared to old techniques. The method allows fast cooking at a high temperature. The result is that more vitamins, texture and colour are preserved, no matter the ingredient. The bonus is that all of the flavour is sealed in the ready meal package.
Other production methods require preservatives to enhance quality and ensure shelf life. With Micvac you don’t need to add anything at all. During the pasteurisation process a natural vacuum is created leaving the tray airtight. The vacuum will keep the meal fresh for weeks and also allows the ready meal package to be displayed upright on the store shelves.
Chilled ready meals are all about convenience. The Micvac method offers new features making it even more practical for the consumer. Smart food packaging design is the key to success. The tray is designed to ensure even heating, all the way through. The clever little valve will make a whistling sound when the ready meal is ready to eat.
