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.
