Are you looking for a sustainable solution for the packaging of meat or poultry products? We are experts at providing meat packaging solutions using solid board! SOLIDUS SOLUTIONS is the leading European, sustainable fibre-based packaging manufacturer for food & beverage, consumer goods and industrial applications. We are a fully integrated packaging solution provider, specialising in the manufacture of packaging made from recyclable board that offers a wide range of advantages. We would like to tell you more about our types of meat packaging materials  and the methods of meat packaging .

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.

Fibre-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. Have a look at the different meat packaging materials  in the picture below!
