To preserve the taste of your products, extend shelf life or present a certain brand image, food packaging needs to be chosen skillfully. Today we would like to help you choose your food packaging.

Why is food packaging so important?

Food packaging addresses three key issues:   

  • Limiting the risk of contamination for consumers 

  • Preserving the nutritional quality of food  

  • Facilitating the transportation, communication and use of food products

In fact, packaging plays an important and essential role in preventing food risks. To minimize risks and protect your products and customers, vigilance and information are essential.  

Not to mention: Food packaging also fulfills consumers' need for transparency. As a key source of product information, packaging is the argument for selling and building trust with your customers. By introducing ecological packaging, for example, you send a strong signal to your customers who increasingly care about the environment. In addition, you show that you care about their health.

What are the types of packaging?

Depending on what products you sell and how you deliver them, you need to find the right packaging product. Here you will get some food packaging ideas that you should consider for your business. 

First of all, you should know that there is a suitable food packaging for every food product that you are packaging. The wide range of formats of today's food packaging gives you the opportunity to best protect every product you sell. You can choose between the following materials: 

  • Food films and paper: These are crucial to preserve products during transport and prevent packaging from becoming soiled or overflowing. 
  • Bags: They are used to help your shippers or customers carry their goods in a convenient way. 
  • Disposable tableware: It is required by take-away and snack professionals and must comply with the legal requirements for disposable packaging.

What about environmentally friendly and sustainable packaging?

To meet the legal requirements and the expectations of increasingly environmentally conscious consumers, you can choose environmentally friendly food packaging. The packaging are for example:

  • Recyclable, e.g. made of cardboard or kraft paper

  • Made from recycled materials, such as recycled plastic or cardboard (some are 100% recyclable like our Doypack stand-up pouch with paper look).

  • Industrially compostable 

  • Bio-based, made from materials such as sugar cane, wood or corn starch 

  • Reusable, e.g. reusable bags and pouches
