Common questions regarding food packaging.
What is food packaging?
Food packaging consists of both flexible and rigid materials used to protect during transport from contamination as well as extend the shelf life of products. The packaging that is in direct contact with the food must be made from FDA approved material.

Some of the most common materials for protecting foods and keeping them fresh are: polyethylene, prolypropylene, polyvinyl, and laminated bags which consist of various materials joined together to achieve a higher degree of protection than is possible using a single material.
How does food packaging keep foods fresh?
Flexible films offer barriers against direct contamination such as bacterias and molds. This ensures foods are stored in a hygenic environment between the time they are packaged and when they are consumed. Food barrier films also offer protection from oxygen and moisture both of which can affect the organoleptic qualities of a food.
