According to some estimates, you can actually save up to $2,700 a year by vacuum sealing!
The main reason is that vacuum sealing extends the shelf life of food, so there is less food waste. Often we throw away food items that have spoiled or are not as fresh anymore. This can be avoided if you vacuum seal and store your food or leftovers correctly! Check out a few of the ways you can save money with Vacuum Sealing today.
Buy meats such as lamb, pork, beef or chicken in bulk, then vacuum seal and freeze. Vacuum sealed meat can be freeze-stored for 15-20 months, allowing you to cut meal prep costs drastically by assuring a well stocked freezer.
Buy fresh produce from farmers markets in bulk or when on special. The fresher the food when vacuumed the longer it will last. Frozen sealed vegetables can be stored for 18-24 months, however, they must be parboiled prior to vacuuming sealing.
Don’t throw out leftovers… vacuum seal and freeze them. They keep much longer until you’re ready to eat them. Vacuum Sealing leftovers can turn what would normally go off in the fridge into an ample supply of work lunch or easy dinner options.
Buy cheese in bulk or on special – vacuum seal and freeze. The cheese will last in the refrigerator for 4 – 8 months when vacuum packed. This is the perfect opportunity for commercial organisations and the hospitality industry to make the most out of products that are infamous for not keeping well.
Make big batches of soup or sauce, vacuum seal and freeze. Reheat when ready. Vacuum
sealed soup or sauce can be freeze-stored for up to 12 months, creating easy meal options and solutions for any day of the week.
Buy grains and dried beans in bulk or when on special, vacuum seal and store in the pantry, extending the shelf life of a product that can last up to year to potentially last up to a decade.
