Fibrous casings

Futamura succeeded to develop fibrous casing for the first time in Japan in 1974, until then only imported casings had been available. 
Fibrous casing is composed of two key materials: special paper milled from Abaca (also known as "Manila Hemp"), and viscose which is a colloidal cellulosic solution derived from wooden pulp. This unique composition of fibrous casing enables it to perform an excellent smoke permeability; the best casing for smoked meat product by meat processors around the globe. In addition, fibrous casing has also superior tensile strength thanks to Abaca fibers, which results to an excellent size consistency of the finished meat products. Due to those two unique characteristics, fibrous casing of Futamura is known to be a long seller casing not only in domestic market but also in the globe, including USA, Europe and Australia.
