Functional principle

Aroma protection guaranteed

It takes sophisticated technical solutions to protect food products, espe-cially those that remain active in their packaging. In this domain, our pro-prietary WICOVALVE® has become the widely adopted standard.

Our proprietary WICOVALVE® aroma-protec-tion/pressure-relief was originally designed for coffee. During the past years, this valve technology has been refined and modified  for many new applications. It allows fresh foods such as doughs, soy products, cheeses, mushrooms or microwavable meals to be marketed in consumer-friendly packaging yet in full compliance with the requirements of modern logistics. WICOVALVE® pressure-relief valves are available with different material combinations, opening pressure levels, flow rates, and filters to meet the needs of the application.
