Multivac and Krehalon announced a joint agreement to distribute FormShrink thermoforming films. In this agreement, Multivac has been appointed the exclusive, authorized sales distributor of FormShrink films from Krehalon. The agreement includes many markets in Europe, Middle East, Americas, Africa and Asia. 

The FormShrink packaging solution offers a cost-effective and automated alternative to shrink bag packaging. Krehalon FormShrink films are shrinkable thermoformable films, which were developed to target the shrink bag market.  Multivac has developed a comprehensive line of thermoform packaging machinery well suited to high volume, uniformed shaped products currently packed in shrink barrier bags. FormShrink adds value through automation, pack cost reduction and "skin tight" pack presentation. Typical applications include sausage, cheese, cooked or dried meats, chicken, fresh meats and many other standardized products.

The agreement combines the long-term experience of two companies in marketing shrinkable thermoformed packaging solutions. Multivac brings its technology in thermoforming solutions, while Krehalon brings its expertise in shrinkable film technology.

The cooperation between Multivac and Krehalon started in 2004. Since then, the two companies have developed machinery and packaging films together, gaining a leading market position in shrinkable thermoformed packaging solutions.
