Packaging not only helps market your product, but it keeps your products safe from contamination and damage. In addition, custom food packaging protects consumers from ingredients that may be harmful to their health. Below, learn more about the major role that effective packaging plays when it comes to food safety.
- Keeping Food Fresh. The right type of packaging keeps certain foods fresh from contaminants that could affect the products’ freshness and quality. Customized food packaging meets specific requirements that have been tested to ensure the contents remain fresh from the packing, shipping and handling process to the retail shelf.
- Safe from Physical Damage. No matter where your food products are manufactured and where they are being shipped, they will likely be exposed to the risk of physical damage – whether from weather conditions during the shipping process or rough handling within the retail environment. Strong packaging is necessary to protect foods from bruises, breakage, water damage or other physical harms that could affect the quality of the product.
- Tamper Evidence. Packaging must also be able to protect food products from tampering. Tamper-evident seals let the consumer know if the product has been opened before purchase. Examples include pop-up buttons on lids and plastic seals around bottle caps.
- Food Labeling Matters. Consumers with serious food allergies and intolerances rely heavily on accurate food labels to ensure they are not eating anything with potentially harmful ingredients. Food packaging that clearly state ingredient lists, manufacturing locations, sources and certifications allow consumers to make safe decisions about their food.
