Beef Jerky Packaging

Jerky Products Present Packaging Challenges

Jerky is a unique product in that is dried, but not completely without moisture. This tends to create more clumping and sticking during the weighing process. In turn, this results in irregular fill with some bags being lighter than required and some being heavier.

This is an unacceptable scenario for any production line.

Ohlson's Optimized Jerky Packaging Solution

At Ohlson Packaging, we use an overhead delivery process to spread out any clumps of jerky prior to it being fed into the multi-head weigher. This allows for accurate filling with faster rates of speed.

From here, the jerky falls down into the bagger. With our systems you can choose either film or premade pouches – just let us know – and our engineers will customize the system to your specific needs.
