Barbecue sausages are commonly marketed in a flowpack, but Schur Star systems has launched a stand-up bag concept for Sweden's leading sausage brand Litthells, and will demonstrate the new solution at foodpro 2017 on stand D61.

The new solution for the Lithells brand comprises four products marketed in Schur Star Stand-up Bags. They are flexo-printed with a special paper-feel varnish giving a rustic paper bag effect; the print design communicates fire, charcoal and rich tasty products.

The stand-up bags have a window allowing a view of its fresh contents, enhancing shelf appeal.

A carrier handle adds to consumer convenience, for carrying the product home or directly to the garden for a barbecue. A reclosable zipper is included to enhance freshness, increase shelf life and reduce waste.

The Schur Star Concept consists of the Schur Star Packaging Machine and premade Schur Star Bags that are linked together on a string to ensure a smooth packing process. With a Schur Star Packaging Machine, changeover between different bag constructions and sizes is quickl and simple.

Similarly effortless is change-over between manual, semi- or fully automatic filling – dependent on type and complexity of the product. The machine can easily be integrated into an existing production line and combined with weighing, marking or product processing equipment, like, for example, gas flush.
