Report Description


Global Chub Films Market: Introduction

Chub packaging is cylindrical shaped semi-rigid tubes which is clipped or twist tied through clips or metal fasteners respectively at either ends. Chub packaging is used to pack soft food products including pet food, taco meat, salami, chorizo, sausage, ground turkey, ground beef among others. Unprinted, white or printed multi-layer films which are usually developed through co-extrusion are used to pack food products in chub packaging format. Printed chub films are commonly used to pack case-ready products. In comparison to tray-based packaging for food products, chub packaging is lighter in weight, reduces the amount of packaging material and reduces transportation cost. Thus, chub packaging is more sustainable than tray-packaging. Chub packaging also extends the shelf life of packaged products and have high barrier properties, puncture resistant, sealability among others. Chub films have high oxygen and moisture barrier properties. The multi-layer film that is used for chub packaging of products includes an oxygen barrier layer, nylon layer, polyethylene layer, abuse layer, heat sealable layer among others.

Global Chub Films Market: Market Dynamics

The main factors driving the chub films packaging market is increase in number of packaging units per unit time, thus increasing line speed and reducing leaker rates.

From January 2017, U.S. based global food producer Cargill in collaboration with global packaging supplier Bemis developed a chub film packaging brand EZ Peel for packaging ground beefs in the U.S. Cargill did a market survey 2015 Cargill Innovation Study that showed that ~57% consumers of ground beef in the U.S. wanted a packaging that allowed them to open the chub packaging without touching raw meat. Cargill is providing Our Certfied brand of ground beef with EZ Peel feature across retail stores in the U.S. Cargill’s Our Certified brand of ground beef have a shelf life of ~21 days.    

In July 2008, Flexopack patented a film for chub packaging. The film was invented by George Roussou. Chub packages are produced by using a vertical form fill seal (VFFS) process. In VFFS process a tube is formed from a flat roll of a film. The vertical tube formed is sealed at one end using metal fasteners or clips. The soft food product such as ground beef is pumped in by a pumping equipment at the open end of the tube and then the top is sealed through metal fasteners or clips.
