Vacuum solutions for food processing and packaging

The global food production, processing and packaging industry has an incredibly important and challenging responsibility - feeding billions of people around the world. The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted this reality, but the primary role of the food industry has always been to provide consumers with a safe, stable and affordable food supply.

One of the most impactful and controllable aspects for food production industry to remain competitive is the way in which they utilize their equipment. Food processing and packing lines such as thermoformers, rotary packers, tumblers etc. are often equipped with vacuum pumps for improved shelf life, ease of processing and improved product quality.

Vacuum systems are critical to food processing and packaging, especially when it comes to food safety. Optimized vacuum pumps can maximize your production and minimize your maintenance and downtime. Faulty, outdated and inefficient vacuum can cause slower cycle times and maintenance-related downtimes. This can, in turn, have a direct negative impact on profitability.

Innovative Leybold vacuum solutions focus on optimizing your food production lines:
