Facts About The Packaging Of Food

by Keren Kipfer on 2013/11/21

Taste is of course important in food since this is one of the very first factors that people will notice. However, food packaging is another important aspect that should be considered since the way something looks is often was draws in the consumer in the first place. Obviously packaging also is a way to preserve food and keep in fresh. When you do create packaging, it is important to consider many different factors.

Customers will often remember the design of a food packaging and this will leave a lasting impression in their mind. This not only needs to look pleasing and attractive but also offer info about nutrition and ingredients on the packaging. This must strike a perfect balance between the size of the product and its packaging since this need to be large enough to safely store your product. It is wise to create a package that is just large enough to store your product. Excess packaging is not only wasteful in general, it costs you extra money.

With that in mind, there are many different types of packaging found today. Plastic packaging that is specially made to contain your product provides a durable and sturdy protection against minor falls and scratches. Other options that are available include a combination of foil or Mylar and cardboard, such as you might see with crackers.

For liquid products, it is a good option to consider using glass, aluminum or some type of thermoformed plastic. Thermoforming is a process by which large sheets of plastic are heated and then molded into a specific shape. You can create different shapes or produce different sizes and several companies are taking advantage of such innovative features and design. With their help, everything from bottles to jars to plastic trays and much more can be created from thermoformed plastic and this makes food packaging easier and convenient.

Different manufacturers must use special printers, known as id coders, to put certain numbers on their products. These include batch numbers, serial numbers, expiration dates and other important information that are found in these packaging. This is important information for consumers as well as retailers and for your own in-house inventory system.

Id coders use fast-drying inks and the coders can very quickly print the numbers on a variety of packaging materials from Mylar to glass to plastic and more. These id coders can save a huge amount of time and resources since they dry very quickly and print very quickly. Imagine having to hiring someone to stamp each product individually and it quickly becomes apparent why an id coder is important. These fast-drying inks are a bit expensive especially if you buy it straight from the manufacturer of your coder. However, you can buy generic coder inks that offer the same performance at a very affordable price. Sites such as PrintJet.com sell generic versions of Domino ink, VideoJet ink, Maxima ink and more for very low prices.

Keren Kipfer loves researching products for industrial manufacturers such as ink jet printers. To get more info about Domino inks or to know about different types of commercial inkjet printers, please check out the PrintJet website now.
