What's in a name?

We often get asked about our company name. VC999? Where did THAT come from? Our name VC999® stands for vacuum capacity 99.9% – a reference to the highest vacuum performance that can be achieved.

For over 50 years, VC999 has been a leading global manufacturer of vacuum packaging machines. We’ve seen a lot of change over the past 50 years!

Food preservation has come a long way since the Industrial Revolution. From canning to refrigeration, many techniques to extend the shelf life of our food have been developed. However, none of these methods compares to vacuum packaging. 

Vacuum packaging removes the air from the packaging, which slows the growth of bacteria and other pathogens that cause food spoilage. This not only keeps the food fresh for longer but also reduces the risk of foodborne illnesses. 

One of the most significant advantages of vacuum packaging is that by extending the shelf life of food, we reduce the amount of food waste and the need for preservatives and additives, making our food healthier and more natural. 

Modern vacuum packaging techniques have become more innovative and efficient than ever before. The latest technology allows for customized packaging that fits the food perfectly, minimizing waste and ensuring optimal protection. Additionally, vacuum packaging can be used for various food products, including meat, fish, fruits, and vegetables. 

While vacuum packaging isn’t new, vacuum packaging is still the future of food preservation. It’s a sustainable, healthy, and efficient way to keep our food fresh and safe. VC999 continues to develop new technology and techniques to further improve vacuum packaging. We have no doubt that vacuum packaging will continue to be the gold standard in food packaging.
