In a competitive landscape like the food industry, it is important to get the packaging right. This isn’t just for practicality, but to keep a competitive edge on busy supermarket shelves. Food packaging is the enclosing of food to protect it from damage, contamination, spoilage, pest attacks, and tampering, during transport, storage, and retail sale. The package is often labeled with information such as the amount of the contents, ingredients, nutritional content, cooking instructions (if relevant), and shelf life. The package needs to be designed and selected in such a manner that there are no adverse interactions between it and the food. Packaging types include bags, bottles, cans, cartons, and trays.
