Don’t Compromise Safety or Quality with Your Recyclable Packaging Needs

Plastic was first invented in the year 1907 and since then it has been widely used as a form of packaging for both edible and non-edible products. Since then single use plastic packaging has contributed largely to the total amount of waste found in landfills, lakes, streams, rivers, and the oceans. Plastic waste is harmful and has negative impact on the environment. For many years, plastic packaging has been widely use to the convenience of manufacturers and consumers.

Single use plastic packaging is not biodegradable and takes about 400 years or more to biodegrade and in the long run releasing toxic chemical contaminating the land, streams, rivers, and oceans. Then came the worldwide call to do away with single use plastic packaging and opting for recyclable packaging.

Non-biodegradable plastic packaging has caused the death of many marine animals every year. These marine animals mistook the plastic for food, causing the animals to choke on the plastic or were strangled to death by the plastic.

World Health Organization (WHO) has called for the use of reusable or recyclable biodegradable bags as the best alternative to single used non-degradable plastic bags. To support the call, shopping malls, supermarkets and stores are distributing reusable shopping bags or organic cotton shopping bags to their customers. Instead of using single use plastic drinking bottles, manufacturers are coming up with a range of plastic bottles for multiple purposes such as insulated water bottles made from stainless steel, and etc.

Next, we move on to packaging bags for frozen food such as frozen meats, seafood, vegetables, prepared meals, and etc., without sacrificing the quality and safety of the food and ingredients inside the frozen food packaging. The packaging for storing frozen food should preserve and maintain the freshness and quality up to the time when they are heated, cooked and served.

The quality of the materials used for the packaging makes a lot of difference in the preservation of the quality of the frozen food. Poor quality packaging will cause dehydration or frost burn food way before the expiry date. Frozen food packaging are designed with tear notches for the convenience of the consumers and re-sealable zippers for storage of the food.

These days, food manufacturers use lightweight and flexible packaging for storing frozen food. These packaging usually comes in stand-up pouches or flexible lay flat designs which take up very little storage space.

Health companies make sure that the packaging used for their vitamins and health supplements are of superior quality to compete with their rival companies. Superior quality means customized flexible health supplement and vitamin packaging for their products to stand out from the other brands. This type of flexible packaging is capable of protecting and preserving the freshness and quality of the products because it is strong, durable, resistant against punctures, moisture, odour, pest, and etc. These packaging include flat barrier bags, stand up pouches, and for liquid the packaging comes in the form of spouted stand up bag or re-sealable caps. These superior quality packaging keep the product fresh and in the best condition.
