The 3 things you need to know before you choose the Food Packaging

Food Packaging Bag is a vital part of the food industry. It plays an important role in packaging food, beautifying food, protecting food, and promoting food. Today, I will help you choose better packaging materials, types, and packaging equipment.

First of all, packaging materials are divided into plastic, paper, tin, glass and so on. Plastics are divided into PET, CPP, PE, nylon, Aluminum foil and so on. Each material has different protective effect.

l PET is Polyethylene, it is a kind of transparent film with the strongest toughness, the highest transparency and high temperature resistance among all plastic products.

l CPP is a kind of transparent film, the hardness is higher than PE film, and it has good acid resistance, alkali resistance and grease resistance. Suitable for fried food, cooking food, aseptic packaging, etc.

l PE is one of the most widely used plastic materials, it has strong flexibility, can be composite, and can be heat sealed. Suitable for any kind of food packaging.

l Nylon is a kind of soft plastic film with good oxygen resistance, but poor water vapor resistance. It needs to be combined with other materials such as PE or CPP.

l Aluminum foil is a common packaging material, especially suitable for all kinds of liquids, high barrier requirements, medicine, and other packaging.

l Paper Packaging including Paper box and Paper bag. It can used in dry product; it has poor barrier but 100% biodegradable.

l Tin is made of aluminum and most used in tea and non-food.

l Glass packaging is good used in drinking.

Second, for Packaging types are including Pre-made Stand Up Pouch, Zipper Bag, Side Gusset Pouch, Quad seal Bag, Packaging film and Spout Pouch. You need to choose the suitable Packaging Type according to your sales channel. For example, if you sell food in a supermarket or store, you must choose a stand-up pouch or a quad seal bag so that your goods can stand on the shelf. If you're selling your product on Amazon or online, you can choose zipper bags or three sides heat sealed bags, which will save the cost.

Third, before you start to order packaging equipment, you should know what material and type your product is packed with so as to choose the right packaging equipment. If you are just starting your business, you can also try semi-automatic small devices.

Finally, I hope you will have a prosperous business and abundant financial resources in the new year.
