Everyone starts small - like us. Step by step, we have made something big out of a shared vision. We are proud of that.



The process of vacuum sealing is quite simple:

The air is slowly sucked out of the vacuum bag using a vacuum sealer. In a second step, the packaging is sealed airtight with weld seams. Since the air is the habitat for microorganisms and enzymes, they can no longer affect the condition of the food after vacuuming.

This is how your vacuum-sealed food stays in full shine:

  • Freshness

  • Vitamins

  • Minerals

  • nutrient

  • colour

  • consistency


The advantages of vacuum sealing!

To vacuum food you need a vacuum sealer and vacuum foils in the form of bags or rolls. This naturally raises the question of whether this effort is worth it at all. We think it is definitely worth it and we want to list a few application examples here.

Large quantities of meat or fish

It is often cheaper to buy meat or fish in larger quantities. Perhaps the goods are currently on sale or you have the opportunity to buy from wholesalers - possibly, as an exception, through friends or acquaintances or from the farmer you trust. Now you can access it without hesitation, because it is guaranteed not to spoil anything.

Seasonal fruits and vegetables

Nature and thus agricultural production have their fixed rhythm. If you want to eat regionally and seasonally for ecological reasons (ie only consume local products that are freshly harvested or are still in stock from the last season), this entails certain restrictions. Eating only root vegetables and cabbage all winter can get quite monotonous. Vacuuming helps here, because from now on your supplies are in season all year round.

Pre-cooking (meal prep)

Many people are at the mercy of canteen meals or cheap restaurants during the week. It doesn't have to be, because you can pre-cook many dishes such as plate dishes, soups and stews and then vacuum pack them in portions. So you and your loved ones always have freshly cooked food to hand that can simply be warmed up in a water bath or in the microwave. (More about precooking here.)

Wild and fresh fish

If you are a hunter or a fisherman, you know that the exploitation of the prey - for personal consumption or for sale - is not that easy. After chopping and portioning, you can now store your booty professionally using vacuum sealing. The notorious freezer burn will then also be a thing of the past.

Why vacuuming is ecologically harmless despite plastic.

Some people have concerns about the use of plastic bags in vacuuming. In our view, there are two things to consider here:

Are the materials used harmless?

The films have direct food contact, so you have to be careful with the material. When buying the vacuum bags, please make sure that they are free of BPA and plasticizers. In the case of Far East products, this is often not clearly declared, which is why we advise you to only buy reliable EU products.

Is vacuuming environmentally friendly "the bottom line"?

We mean very clearly: yes. By vacuum sealing, the spoilage - and thus the throwing away - of food can be massively restricted and therefore this practice is also ecologically harmless. At culivac, we also rely on the use of recyclates in production. Furthermore, our foils are recyclable. We recommend returning the vacuum sealing films to the recycling cycle after use.
