We are close to finishing our red meat abattoir for export purposes. Can someone help as I am not too of what vacuum packaging to use for frozen products that will be shipped from Africa to China, Europe and the Middle East. I will be selling various meat products from sheep, goats and beef. My dilemma is on vacuum packing material. Do I use ordinary vacuum bags without shrinking abilities or shrink bags. What are the pros and cons of the two types? Please can someone advise as I do not want to sell something that will fail because of packaging or end poisoning the end-user and having to recall containers of product

Suggest you contact supplier. Sealed Air, Bemis, Flexopak. These are the professionals. My experience is that the same vacuum bags for chilled products are used for vacuum packed frozen. That's if you want to vacuum pack. Shrink y/n, doesn't really matter IMO. Also have seen just bagged, Individual wrapped or Layer pack frozen products do well.
