Coffee Industry

Coffee is one of our most sold-to industries. With a wide variety of bag sealers to choose from, Plexpack encourages coffee industry buyers to first consider our vacuum gas flush (also known as Modified Atmosphere Packaging or MAP) machines. These are a modified version of our high-output band sealers, the MPS 7100s, and are known as our MPS 7103 VGF. Both these models are hugely popular. However, the VGF is unique because it works by

1. flushing your packaging with a gas, such as nitrogen or CO2
2. vacuuming the air out of the packaging
This removes a great deal of the oxygen, making it difficult for aerobic bacteria (meaning they require oxygen) to grow. Many large-scale retailers also require that coffee producers use VGF/MAP for their packaging.

For smaller producers on a budget, we highly recommend one of our MPS 6100, or Vacpack series bag sealers, which, like the MPS 7100 series sealers, are equipped with a top of the line PC, allowing for greater ease of use. We are also launching a lite version of the VP 2440 in Spring 2019, so stay tuned for new offerings, or ask our reps about how you can acquire one of your own.

For producers who are scaling up, we highly recommend our ABS series of sealers which can automatically fill, gas flush and seal your coffee pouches. If you are not ready for automation at this time, we would instead advise that you review our MPS 7103 and MPS 7503 lines instead.
