The development of food and beverage packaging in

  • Detail

In recent years, the development of food and beverage packaging in China has accounted for most of the packaging industry. In the face of the current development trends and improvement goals, the food and beverage packaging industry has also made a series of countermeasures

in the next few years, the development of food and beverage packaging in China will be the most obvious, and its importance is listed as follows:

(I). For most new packaging, raw materials based on petrochemical products are mainly used

(II). The further development of sterile packaging will reduce the need for refrigeration equipment. Some consumers believe that metal canned food is a high-end product, and aseptic packaging is mostly cartons with low prices, which is considered to be a low-end product. In fact, this is a misunderstanding. Packaging should get twice the result with half the effort. As long as food can be best preserved, the cheaper is the better packaging

(III). More and more people are willing to use plastic cans and bottles, which will replace glass products and, in some cases, metal products

(IV). Flexible packaging materials are developing towards high quality. The introduction of flexographic printing and the development of hydraulic universal testing machine in China began in the 1970s. Now we have been able to manufacture flexographic printing machines and their substrates, as well as various flexible printing inks. In particular, the standardized production of water-based inks and water-based polishes can add a set of one color water-based polishes on other types of inks to cover the volatilization of other toxic solvents; It can also be in direct contact with food, ensuring food safety and hygiene. In addition, he has also accumulated rich experience in printing technology, and has been able to print prints that are not lower than the traditional technology. For example, in the label printing of international well-known brands such as Coca Cola and Pepsi Cola, it has reached the international level and approached the international level

in China, flexographic packaging printing has made great progress in the past 10 years, but its development momentum is not fast. From the perspective of packaging and printing practitioners, we should make bold innovations in machines, materials and processes, actively explore and climb the peak. Only with first-class products can we win the welcome of manufacturers and customers. For the majority of food business operators, we also hope to emancipate our minds and let go of the use of new packaging. For example, flexographic printing is indeed less exquisite than traditional printing. Can we adapt to it by improving the design of packaging? Another example is that the color of flexographic printing is not bright enough, but the 5th China International new materials exhibition is held jointly with the Heilongjiang provincial government, which is thick and solid, which can fully develop strengths and circumvent weaknesses, and achieve better visual effects

(V). Reduce the packaging cost by improving the performance of packaging materials, rather than unilaterally pursuing the reduction of material prices. Packaging is different from general products (general products are usually used only on a specific occasion), which need to be frequently loaded, sealed, stored, transported and other commodity processes, Customers often have a long-term service standard management and use process after buying, so we must ensure and improve the packaging quality

(VI). Light packaging will continue to make progress. The general trend of reducing packaging quality can also be clearly seen from some of the above projects. Replacing glass and metal containers with flexible packaging, plastic cans and plastic bottles with smaller weight can greatly reduce transportation costs. Its development trends include: it is easy to pick up and carry goods, and those who need Inventory. Due to the light package 8 and the weight: 18kg, the pallet load is correspondingly reduced, and there can be fewer pallets and forklifts; The packaging used to pack individual cartons, glass and plastic containers, flexible packaging and other food packaging needs to increase its strength to facilitate safe transportation to stores

(VII). Traditional fiber packaging materials (cellophane and translucent paper) have a trend of being phased out. Polypropylene film is most likely to completely replace cellophane. Translucent paper (and grease proof paper) will be replaced by high-density and low-density metal foil, especially those with bimetal extrusion and resin, which can double their functions

(VIII). Packing has been promoted in the food and beverage market

China Packaging believes that only by adapting to market changes, changing packaging technology and considering more comprehensive development can it survive in this packaging market
