Almost halfway through another year, it is time for some updates on technology in the field of packaging.
Technological growth, this year, has accommodated the increased concern for hygiene and a significant surge in e-commerce.
Let’s look at a few of the recent developments:
X-RAY TECHNOLOGY WITH LASER VISION
X-Ray technology has now been used for inspection of food and its packaging for years now. But now machines deepen the level of precision by strengthening the algorithm used to pinpoint defects.
Packaging is something that is the first thing that we see when it comes to checking out any product for the first time. Because it is the first recognizable item in a product, it is important for companies to go the extra mile when designing and preparing it.
Labelling is the display of label in a product. A label contains information about a product on its container, packaging, or the product itself. It also has warnings in it. For e.g. in some products, it is written that the products contain traces of nuts and shouldn’t be consumed by a person who’s allergic to nuts. The type and extent of information that must be imparted by a label are governed by the relevant safety and shipping laws.
In 2021, anyone who shops for groceries knows to avoid the single-use plastic bag as it pollutes the environment. This blog will cover how those bags, if used, go on to break down into microplastics and why microplastic pollution is considered so harmful that we want to get rid of it altogether.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought changes in every aspect of life as we knew it. This includes how we view, buy and use products and by association, the packaging that encases these products. Today, consumers’ expectations and preferences are heavily dependent on the impact of this global crisis. With emerging variants and new health advisories on a daily, buyers expect rapid changes from the market to accommodate the crucial needs of the general public.
A few areas of packaging and packaging design that have needed to keep pace with changing scenario are:
Food packaging is a vital part of the supply chain of food manufacturers as it attracts customers and in certain cases also improves the product shelf life. It greatly Influences the customer purchasing behavior and is modeled meticulously after considerable research. Subsequent to the global health emergency that loomed over us through most of 2020, markets of the world underwent revolution and so has the food packaging segment.
Focusing on safety
Food packaging refers to the enclosing of food products to shield them from contamination and tampering from chemical, physical, and biological sources. You may also package food to enhance its shelf life or keep its taste and quality during shipping and handling. Many food products whether fresh or processed, are stored, marketed, and distributed in packaging.
Because food is a delicate product, it's important for it to be well packaged to avoid coming into contact with contaminants. The materials you use in packaging should guarantee safety during transit.
The Packaging Industry in India is one maong the high growth industries which are developing at a rate of 22-25% per annum. Grdaually, as Make in India catches up with industries, India has the potential of becoming a preferred hub of Packaging market world wide.
So Here is the List of Top Packaging Companies in India.
Serialization is the provision of a unique serial number to each saleable unit of a product. This number provides information about the product’s origin, manufacturing, and expiration date and works as an identifier for tracking. Serialization codes are generated either randomly or sequentially.
Serialization is important (and obligatory in most countries), especially in the pharmaceutical industry, as it protects against counterfeit drugs.
Active and intelligent elements are being widely added to packaging to increase consumer engagement and safety of the product. One such smart addition to packaging is smart ink.
Smart inks are generally of two types:
THERMOCHROMATIC INKS: They change colour when the temperature increases or decreases. This colour change is reversible and constant.
PHOTOCHROMIC INKS: They change colour on exposure to daylight (UV light). Again, this change this reversible and instantaneous.
