Importance of Food Packaging

Today’s consumers are greeted with innovative options that run the gamut from eco-friendly packaging to designs that actually assist in the food preparation process. So much consideration and science goes into selecting the correct container and packaging materials for manufacturers. Packaging protects against damage or contamination by micro-organisms, air, moisture and toxins. It prevents product spilling or leaking. Nutrition, ingredients and sell-by dates are important not only to the consumer, but to grocery stores as well. Bar codes help stores to track inventory and sales. Food Packaging plays such an important role in the preservation and marketability of a product, many companies seek a contract packaging service to help them obtain the best quality packaging available. Benefits to a co-manufacturer include cost, speed, quality and innovation.

Packaging is an essential medium for preserving food quality, minimising food wastage and reducing preservatives used in food. The packaging serves the important function of containing the food, protecting against chemical and physical damage whilst providing information essential to consumers and marketers. Packaging also provides an important medium whereby manufacturers can provide information on product features, nutritional contents and ingredient information.
