NEW ZEALAND: Supermarkets trial long-term fresh meat storage system
A New Zealand supermarket is trialling a new fresh meat storage system that means meat can stay fresh for up to two months. Plastics company Vertex is launching its SecureFresh chilled-meat packaging system, and Progressive Enterprises is trialling the system at the moment.

As long as the meat is kept at 0°C, it should stay fresh for up to two months, according to Vertex, thus cutting waste for supermarkets.
