When it comes to consumer food products in the grocery aisle or other point of sale, the packaging of the product is almost as important as the product itself when it comes to influencing the consumer’s buying decision. Packaging must be well designed and presented, be fit for use when it comes to storage requirements and conditions, and be easy to open and convenient to prepare. In addition to this there are a number of other challenges for food and packaging manufacturers, including safe transport and storage, control of freshness, and attractive shelf presence.
The market for convenient, easy to prepare prepackaged foods continues to grow at a brisk pace. This growth is a result of the consumer’s desire for the convenience of pre-packaged foods that minimize meal preparation time. Packaging technology plays a key role in the ability of food suppliers to offer case-ready products, specifically the ability to offer flexible-packaging films that are tailored to match the specific food product to maximize its shelf life. New laser solutions from Portco provide answers to these challenges!
