More about Jif-Pak
Technical Sales Team
In 1990, Neil and Marcus Mintz co-founded Jif-Pak Manufacturing, Inc. to produce Casing-Net™ , tubular tight weave polyester nets, for the US and Canadian markets.
In 1994, they invented and patented Square Pattern Casing-Net to compete directly with elastic netting and collagen film.
Due to its many advantages, including improved machineablitly, rind, shape, quality and consistency, it quickly become the preferred choice to collagen film and elastic netting.
By 2000, Casing-Net™ had replaced the majority of Collagen Film/Elastic Netting used in the USA
In 1999, Jif-Pak purchased the assets of Industrial Knitting, to add elastic netting as a product line.
Through heavy investment in Research & Development, Jif-Pak continued to develop new products and processes and was the first company toApply liquid smoke & release agent to nets.
Apply colorant and flavor systems (example caramel color, browning agents, spice extracts etc.) to nets.
Pre-shirr nets onto plastic tubes for use on automated sizer/clipper systems.
Develop other Casing-Net patterns including, Diamond, Ripple, Spiral, Rib, etc.
Develop stuffing and peeling equipment specifically for Casing-Net.
Market research had shown trends and the need in processed meat industry for the following applications:
