I want to sell my ravioli, gnocchi and fresh pasta sauces in refrigerated departments of stores. Does any one know how they package their products so that they last 2 weeks or more? Is it vacuum sealed?

Thanks!~!

I don't think they are vacuum sealed. I think they are heat sealed around the edges. I could be totally wrong though.

FWIW, recently I came across some interesting pasta sold on Amazon, etc.  The pasta looked very appealing and unique, but reading through several reviews (it arrived broken, etc., & wondered how long it was on the shelf), I'm still on the fence.

Examples:


There's a lot of competition out there:

Check out a Duniform machine. Many different options for food packaging.

I think your best bet is to go to the big guys like Barilla etc. Present them with a sample, and let them do the packaging.
