The Viscofan Group is the world leader in artificial casings for meat products which it distributes in over 100 countries worldwide.  Viscofan is the only worldwide manufacturer of casing using technology for categories of casing such as cellulose, collagen, fibrous and plastic.  In the Danville plant we make fibrous casings used for products such as lunch meats, boneless ham, pepperoni, salami sausage, and other deli-style processed meats.  We also make Cellulose casings that are used to cooked hotdogs and then discarded before packaging for retail sale
