Food packaging package provides protection, tampering resistance, and special physical, chemical, or biological needs. Properly packaged, vacuumed and sealed foods stored at room temperature or cooler (24°C/75°F or lower) can remain nutritious and unspoilt for months without losing freshness.
A great food product embodies the following packaging practices
Products with good food packaging protection are safeguarded against transport and any possible tampering and contamination from micro-organisms, moisture, chemicals and other forms of toxins
Sound sealing mechanisms provide resiliency to ensure that product form remains undamaged and does not get compromised through out all stages of the product distribution.
Nutrition, ingredients, sell by and used by dates are not only crucial to the consumer, but also allows retailers and sellers to track their inventory and manage their sales strategy.
Marketing is the biggest contributor to how well a product can penetrate its target consumer group. A decently package product must be able to at minimum provide the first 3 points, but also be a sound method for customer to know that the item is the right product for them.
