    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.

    Sounds like a good idea.  However, I would get all my ducks in a row.  Perhaps this might help:

    You might "partner" with a local restaurant, and prepare the fresh pasta and sauces on their premises/in their kitchens.  Good luck.  Wish you much success.

    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.
