Meat & Poultry Packaging

Meat and poultry are packaged chilled or frozen and often in humid environment. A solid board box is robust and compact and retains its maximum strength even under humid conditions. Your product also freezes much faster when packed in paper-based board. Solid board packaging supplied with a PE liner is suitable for direct food contact, at the same time it meets all the requirements regarding hygiene and food safety. Our boxes are designed to be up to all physical requirements of the supply chain to ensure your product arrives in optimal condition. The packaging will be fully fitted to your logistics process, whether it is manual or (semi) automatic, or whether it involves loose products or products packed in primary packaging, cooled or frozen.

Why choose Solidus meat packaging solutions?

Types of meat packaging

There are a lot of different types of meat that require packaging. This ranges from raw meat to processed meat products and it can include farmed, organic and wild meat and poultry, as well as meat alternatives. Our meat packaging solutions are appropriate for every kind of meat and poultry. Our solid board packaging is ideal for the moist and cool environment found when packing meat and poultry, and it can be used to pack products that require either chilling or freezing.


Meat packaging must be safe and durable. Hygiene is a very important factor during the slaughter and cutting of the meat. A constant temperature of maximum 4°C during the packaging process is crucial to avoid nucleation.

Paper-based board has properties that makes it ideal for freezing. Solid board has no insulating air trapped in its walls, which speeds up the freezing process of the product it contains. Depending on the choice of packaging and the freezing tunnel used, solid board packaging can reduce the freezing time by 30-50%.


Poultry packaging is typically packed in conditions with high moisture and low temperature, so its packaging must be strong and durable. Our poultry packaging provides optimum moisture control, using either leak proof base or a carefully designed pattern of holes. This way, the products will arrive at their destination in perfect condition.

We provide PE coated and uncoated boxes for direct and indirect food contact. The PE coated boxes provide the advantage of being able to directly freeze products inside them, without any need for additional bags. This is a more sustainable solution, saves time and money and there is no risk of poultry sticking to the box.

Our meat packaging materials

For transportation of fresh meat, we supply solid board boxes which are a first-class alternative to returnable plastic crates (RPC). Our boxes are for one time use only, which means optimal hygiene safety and no extra costs for cleaning and returning freight. After use, the boxes can be flattened for disposal. In addition, around 1,000 solid board boxes fit a pallet, which saves storage space in regards to alternative packaging materials.


  • Moisture resistant: solid board retains its strength, shape and volume in humid and wet conditions;
  • Fast freezing: solid board is well suited to storage and transport in cold stores and freezers;
  • Logistical performance: solid board packaging takes up to seven times less space than polystyrene, plastic or wooden boxes, minimizing shipping costs and reducing use of your storage space.
