Chorizo Casing

Hovus has a number of inventive packaging solutions for chorizo, including barrier casings for fresh or frozen raw chorizo, flat films for the high-volume chub producer, and nylon-based monolayer casings specially designed for cooking and stripping applications. Our plastic chorizo casing has many structural and hygienic advantages over natural casing.

Victan® C & XSE

Available in shirred product diameters from 27mm-190mm, they’re also USDA/FDA approved.
