The packaging of food products has a main part throughout the process, from production to consumer. Packages assure the preservation of the good quality, the protection from germs, as well as the decrease in the use of preservatives.
Paper, glass, aluminum or plastic contribute to the preservation of the nutritious ingredients of the food products. You can put your label on the packages, with all the necessary information concerning the product, like the ingredients, the expiration date and its nutritional value. For example, the specific dark bottle that is used for olive oil, through all the E.E., protects the oil from sunlight.
The right packaging helps in the preservation of the smell and the taste of the food products. Herbs and spices need an airtight sealing package, either aluminum or plastic so that the freshness and smell are maintained. The food industry is constantly evolving, as well as the primary and secondary materials. As a result, food packaging adjusts and grows all the time, in order to meet the needs of the food industry and the needs of the consumers.
Finally, let’s not forget that, as consumers, we have to take care of the right preservation of food products, regardless of the packaging. We should always read the labels with the information, store them in dark and dry places, low temperature and away from humidity or smells.
