Product protection for coffee – our business for over 50 years

Coffee

Did you know that Bosch Packaging Technology not only offers fully integrated packaging solutions but is also an expert in product protection, especially for coffee?

 

In a world where food resources are limited, Bosch Packaging Technology’s special focus lies on saving and protecting  customers’ products at every step of the packaging process. Especially when it comes to protecting sensitive products such as oxygen-sensitive coffee, we have been constantly improving our product protection systems. It all started with product protection during the filling process. In order to minimize the packaged product’s oxygen rates that would spoil the product, several processes were developed since 1960. Evacuation for vacuum packaging, inert-gas flushing or even a combination of both techniques

 

Aroma protection with the help of valves
One kilo of roasted coffee produces up to six liters of roasting gasses over a time of five weeks. In addition, just storing the coffee at this stage leads also to a loss of aroma. To circumvent the problem of costly interim storage and this way, preserving the coffee’s rich aroma, Bosch’s product protection valves were developed in 1980. Attached on the inside or outside of the package, coffee and other gas-emitting products can be packaged immediately because the semipermeable valves release the over pressure building up inside the packaging but prevent oxygen from entering the bag. To guarantee precise valve application, applicators were developed inhouse in order to complete our product protection portfolio. As stand-alone or integrated versions they can be easily installed on almost all machine types.

 

Filling precision thanks to auger fillers and checkweighers
Filling and dosing equipment has to be attuned individually for the products. High filling precision is necessary to prevent breakage and save your product. Our checkweighers adjust over- and under filling by tendency regulation. This way they ensure that coffee’s fine capillaries are still intact, prevent wasteful filling of a high-premium product and fulfill customer’s expectations. At Bosch Packaging Technology we offer equipment and expertise that has your product and its protection in mind. “As every product is different we invest a lot of time and effort in coming up with the best product protection solution when advising our clients,” says Marcus Velezmoro, head of sales product line “Package Makers”.
