What Is the Best Type of Packaging For Your Food Product?

Map trays

Are you the owner of a food manufacturing business that is in need of new or updated packaging equipment? Maybe you are rebranding and know that your packaging will be affected by that or perhaps you have created an entirely new product that will require a specifically designed type of packaging that does not exist yet. Whatever your needs might be, there is a good chance that the type of food packaging equipment you need is available somewhere. Below are three of the most commonly used types of food packaging and how they might help you:

1. Printed Shrink Sleeves - If you have visited a grocery store in the past week then you have more than likely encountered Map trays

Are you the owner of a food manufacturing business that is in need of new or updated packaging equipment? Maybe you are rebranding and know that your packaging will be affected by that or perhaps you have created an entirely new product that will require a specifically designed type of packaging that does not exist yet. Whatever your needs might be, there is a good chance that the type of food packaging equipment you need is available somewhere. Below are three of the most commonly used types of food packaging and how they might help you:

1. Printed Shrink Sleeves - If you have visited a grocery store in the past week then you have more than likely encountered printed shrink sleeves as a food packaging option. Printed shrink sleeves are used on cans, jars, bottles, and are a quick, simple, and affordable option for manufacturers. Your marketing team can work with a graphic design team or come up with the exact label that you want on the printed shrink sleeves and then all that is left to do is to make sure you have the equipment to make sure you can use them.

2. Stock Clamshell Packaging - Clamshell packaging is also incredibly common in the food industry because, again, it is easy to use. You just work with the clamshell packaging manufacturer to make sure that your food product can fit exactly how you would like it to in the bottom of the clamshell before the top is closed down on it and eventually sealed.

3. Thermoformed Trays - Thermoformed trays are less used in food packaging recently due to the waste that is sometimes present, and Americans care about plastic recycling. In fact, 60 percent of the United States population have access to a recycling program near their home. It is good to remember, however, that experts estimate that each pound of plastic food packaging can actually reduce food waste by nearly 2 pounds! Thermoformed trays are good to use for food packaging that requires that some ingredients are separated from others such as frozen meals.

As a food manufacturer you are probably aware that how you package your food matters. In fact, studies show that over half (52 percent) of consumers actually make purchase decisions due to the way that packaging shows a brand and whether or not it makes a positive social and environmental impact. If you haven’t already tried printed shrink sleeves, clamshell packaging, or thermoformed trays, then you might want to consider them for your next product design.

Safety First When Considering Food Packaging

Shrinkable lidding film

Have you ever thought about the packaging that your food comes in? Most people haven’t. But despite that relative lack of interest and knowledge by consumers, the packaging that food comes in plays many important roles.

One of the most important roles of food packaging is food safety. Each year about one out of every six people in the U.S. gets a food-borne illness, and about 3,000 people die from related complications. Though not all or even most of those instances are due to improper packaging, some are. Packaging machines can become contaminated, manufacturers and producers can use the wrong type of packaging and x-ray food inspection and other quality-control methods can fail

Catering Special Events What To Think About

Event catering service

Any special event is bound to be exciting — whether you’re planning a wedding or gala, you’re undertaking something that is out of the ordinary. People are able to take a break from their normal lives through special events, and they’re certainly meant to be fun and enjoyable experiences. With that being said, giving that kind of excitement to people is about more than just throwing a party. You also need to be sure that they’re properly fed — and that, in turn, means more than just feeding people until they’re full. The food you serve should reflect the formality or informality of the event in question. It should be a spread that provides options for all of your guests. And there is a style to food; a style that can make or break the memories people have of your event. In fact, food is perhaps the s

Ice Cream The Globally-Loved Treat

Custom ice cream cups

There’s just something about ice cream that has never and will never lose its appeal. According to NPD Group, in any given two-week period, 40% of Americans will eat ice cream. Although ice cream is traditionally associated with hot summer days, the fact is that we tend to eat ice cream all year round. At a birthday party in October, you’ll still break out the ice cream. It doesn’t matter if it’s Christmas Eve and freezing outside — ice cream will still seem like an appropriate choice. As such, it’s no wonder why so many grocery stores keep their freezers well-supplied with ice cream. But there’s more to ice cream than just sugar and a well-blended mix of flavors. Ice cream has grown and expanded throughout the world to include a number of different flavors and forms — it’s probably one of the m

Frozen Yogurt Shops Are Taking Over and it’s Yummy

Yogurt

Ice cream and frozen yogurt shops are taking over and no one seems to mind. Just two years ago, there were an estimated 2,582 frozen yogurt shops. It makes sense, doesn’t it? The treats themselves are in a league of their own, but there are certain aspects of these shops that standout aside from just the tastiness of their products.

The average person in the U.S. will eat ice cream about 29 times a year, but I’m sure we all know those few people who knock that out in a month. Americans are going to snack. It’s what we do. So it doesn’t matter if these yogurt and ice cream shops exist or not, Americans are going to get their frozen deserts. At any two-week period, nearly 50% of Americans will eat ice cream, according to NPD Group research. These shops have to have a fun and exciting environment for everyone,
