Figure 2 – Vacuum sealing a 56 gram (2 oz) bag of Ontario-grown whole leaf Magnum hops. Commercial food grade vacuum sealers are readily available for small business needs. The strip vacuum sealer shown here is a table top version with computer controls in a price range of $500.00 and is a viable option for packaging hops. Smaller, inexpensive kitchen units should be avoided as the seal can break easily and compromise the quality of your product. More expensive chamber vacuum sealers can also be purchased in a price range of approximately $1,500.00.
