The COVID-19 pandemic took place and immediately all activities seemed to stop. There is a major concern right now with food packaging and consumer safety. Manufacturers and consumers have recognized the benefits of plastic food packaging, especially in terms of preservation and shelf life.
Safe plastic packaging
Plastic packaging materials are an important factor in reducing food waste and protecting consumers. There have been major problems in the food supply chain, and circulation routes are not working or going through many checkpoints that take longer than before. Therefore, the use of flexible plastic food packaging is very important in improving shelf life and getting food to the right place while reducing waste. It also saves space by stacking products on top of each other making transportation easier. Consumers want products that are safe and hygienic.
Sustainability remains the focus
The application of laminated films in food packaging, home, and personal care packaging, and medical products is a necessity because of their sustainability.
- Protection: protects vulnerable products from damage whilst in transit and from contamination or damage by moisture, humidity, gases, microorganisms, insects, and light.
- Preservation: preserves products for longer, which reduces waste by giving people more time to use or consume them before it is no longer suitable to do so.
- Displays information: important information about the product, such as nutritional content or allergy advice, is displayed on the packaging
Plastic packaging reduces food waste
Plastic packaging is one of the most important contributors to protecting food from spoiling. Food waste has a significantly higher environmental impact, particularly in the form of its carbon footprint than packaging waste.
Plastic packaging allows food to travel further distances, stay longer on the shelves, and ensures that large amounts of food do not go to waste. Because it takes considerably more resources to create the food itself, it often makes environmental sense to protect it for as long as possible so the resources invested in its growth are not invested in vain.
As well as helping to deliver food around our global economy, liquids, gels, powders, out-of-season fruit, and other specialist items are all safely protected by the material.
There are many types of plastic that have different functional properties such as being safe for food, flexible, transparent, opaque, and chemical and heat resistant. Plastics thus are the ideal packaging material for a variety of modern requirements. Without plastic packaging to serve all these needs, it becomes very difficult (and often impossible) to transport and utilize a wide range of products people rely on every day.
