The main purposes of the food packing operations are to protect the product against any exterior factors and deliver it to the customer before the product is deteriorated and subject to quality loss. If the foodstuffs are not packaged, they are subject to a 30% loss. If they are packaged, this number is reduced to 2 to 3%. This is possible only with a good packaging machine. A packaging machine choice plays a role at this stage.
The food packaging machinery industry has changed exponentially over the past few decades. In today’s fast paced world the demand for single serve food packages, or stick pack products have increased, making the food packing industry come out on top with increased production.
There are also many advantages to single serve food packaging. The biggest advantage is that single serve food packaging is that it significantly reduces the risk of food contamination and the spread of infectious disease. It is highly more sanitary than reusable packaging.
Single serve food packaging, or stick pack products are in high demand and the market for such packaging is enormous and ranges from individual single family homes to restaurants, fast food chains, catering services, businesses, airports and hotels. Single serve food packaging is convenient and simple, making it easy to eliminate the need for measuring single servings, thus increasing use and productivity.
The bottom line is that in today’s world there is a need and demand that will continue to increase and the food packaging industry will thrive.
