How We Are Using It
At Prima-Agri we are implementing this latest
technology. The product Nojax Casing 22/55 CL is used to package
our sausages. Our cellulose casing is produced from cotton liners
(the fuzz from the cotton seeds), which are dissolved and generated
into casing. It provides a high structural strength to the packaged
product making it protected from any damage of infection.
The Nojax casing used by us gives a good display and impression
to serve the purpose of attracting consumers into buying our
product. Consumers will feel confident when they look at the
product at a glance.
This cellulose casing maintains the moisture of the product
when being stored in cold storage. It also helps when the product
is being cooked.
