Food is a life filled with happiness and contentment. It is the basic need of every living being. In the recent lockdowns which the countries have faced, food was the only business that kept working because food manufacturing is a continuous process to meet the continuous need of the people around the globe. Box manufacturers take a lot of things under consideration while making boxes for the food.
Things to be kept in mind for food boxes manufacturing:
Safety layering :
As the chemical composition of the food is quite complicated, it needs continuous protection to save it from rotting. Different foods have different physical properties, for example, cakes are oily and need oil absorbent packaging, dry fruits need to be kept dry and so air-tight Packaging is preferred for them. Some food materials are quite sensitive like baked things so they are wrapped in composite Packaging and so on. The multi-layers of some boxes protect the food inside from breakage, for example, the packaging for eggs, etc.
Different kinds of plastic are being used to prevent foods from environmental air, water, and heat. They act as high oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen barrier and keep the food in fresh form. Different plastic materials in use are; PVC, PET, PA, etc. They are easily decomposed plastics and keep no harmful impacts in them.
Paperboard and cardboard material:
Lighter in weight and higher in protection, paperboard material is used to wrap the fried food and protect it from damage. They have high durability and prevent the leakage of food outside. They save the food from germs and bacteria as they are ecologically friendly material and even their decomposition after use adds no harmful impact on the surroundings. Their brownish color most of all adds a cooling effect to the air and is a soothing sight for the eyes. This packaging is anti-melting and anti-fungus and keeps the food in its best form.
Glass and metal cans and shelves:
Steel cans keep the food that has been thoroughly processed in its original form. The cans of steel are anti-bacterial and keep the wet food wet and dry food dry. They are ideal for foods that have water particles in them. The outside covering is done to give a style to it. They are air-tight and heat resistant and are not molded even when continuous pressure is applied to them.
Wooden is always an ideal material to carry soft things which have a fear of being de-shaped because of the conditions of transport whether on a small scale or larger one. They are heavier but foods like dry fruits in a bulk, and fruits in a bulk are mostly brought in wooden cartons. They help fruits to reap to their fullest and provide them the warmth they need.
So keeping food in its genre is quite a deal and packaging makes it possible. The marketing of the food boxes is therefore done accordingly and businesses keep flourishing.
