Food and beverage packaging is a synchronized system of formulating food for transport, distribution, storage, retailing, and finally to fulfil the desires of consumer at an appropriate cost.  According to the World Packaging Organization (WPO) more than 25% of food gets spoiled due to poor and bad packaging.
