Seed to Sausage owner Mike McKenzie produces hand crafted meats in idyllic Sharbot Lake, ON. He supplies high-end restaurants and food service companies with these principals in mind: Local — Ethical — Humble.

Mike explains that packaging is crucial to protecting his great products and good name… it can also be a bottleneck.

See in this video how he relies on a small footprint Reiser Variovac Optimus to seal in the freshness and quality of his prized meats in his 4,000 square foot facility.

“The Reiser Optimus packages in 2 hours what used to take over half a day,” explains Packaging Supervisor Nancy Teal. “And the Reiser service is great even though we’re a relatively small operation in a rural location.”

Watch Mike and Nancy put the machine through its paces with flawless performance and with easy HMI recipe storage and selection.
