Vacuum skin packaging technology is becoming more and more popular in the food packaging industry because of its unique advantages compared to other packaging methods. So specific to the use of VSP vacuum skin packaging solution in durian processing and packaging, let’s take a closer look at the frozen durian vacuum skin packaging machines, durian skin pack trays and durian skin films.
Why VSP vacuum skin packaging is important to durian industry
Durian is a fruit that is widely welcomed by consumers all over the world, but its main production areas are in Southeast Asian countries such as Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia. If it is difficult for durian lovers in other countries to eat fresh durians, because durian importers first need to import durians, and then sell them to consumers through various distribution channels.
This import and distribution process takes a long time and has a great impact on the quality of durian. In many cases, it is the durian exporters who pick durians when they are immature and taste not yet at their best, in case the durians are over-ripe and spoiled during export and sales.
For this practical demand, a suitable durian packaging solution is particularly important. In the beginning, durian exporters used ordinary durian vacuum packaging to ensure that the durians maintained their original color and taste when they reached consumers. The traditional vacuum packaging for frozen durian has 3 types:
All the above vacuum packaging options for frozen durian are able to prolong the shelf life of durians, especially the “frozen durian thermoforming vacuum packaging” is the most used in massive production of durian vacuum package, but none of them are as good as vacuum skin packaging.
Vacuum skin packaging is mportant to durian industry because of its unique benefits:
- The skin pack tray and film protect the frozen durian from direct contact with oxygen and moisture, help prolong shelf life of the durians
- Retain the color and taste of the frozen durian
- Provides a vivid 3D presentation of the beautiful durian pulps, which are very attractive to consumers
- Uniform package benefits transportation and distribution
- Durian vacuum skin packaging is a powerful brand building tool

In conventional durian vacuum skin packaging, the outer skin film will be in direct contact with the outside world, and there is a risk of being bumped or scratched. Therefore, along with the development of durian vacuum skin packaging technology, the method usually adopted now is on the basis of skin packaging, seal an extra layer of lidding film on the skin trays to protect the skin film and durian.

In this case, the size of the durian vacuum skin packaging tray is usually 215*155*45 mm. However, other sizes of durian vacuum skin packaging trays are available upon request.
