Packaging

Packaging design

Packaging material selection strongly depends on the product to be packaged, food, cosmetics or hygiene products.  Other factors such as product manufacturing, storage and preparation process at home are key in the identification and selection of packaging materials.

The packaging-product adaptation includes many concepts as the following: migrations of the material to the product, development of anomalous aromas and product aroma losses, permeability of packaging materials, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), sealability of materials, and integrity of the material structure and/or the packages.

For current packaging systems, cost savings of 5-10% and an improvement in packaging efficiency can be achieved. This could be achieved by reducing the amount of material used, minimizing waste generation (therefore less taxes) and optimizing logistics.

Packaging with improved properties, active packaging, intelligent packaging, barrier materials or materials with nanotechnological applications provide an added value to the product.

Bringing value through…

Adapting the packaging

Adapting the packaging to product, process and distribution requirements to ensure the quality of the product.

Packaging design

Adjusting the structure of the material, its costs, and its environmental impact

Maximum quality

Avoiding returns and rejections due to bad smells, delaminations, discolorations, loss of seal or vacuum, etc.

Increasing the shelf life

Extending the shelf life of the packaged products. Improving its logistics and distribution distances. Waste reduction.

Adaptation to legal requirements

Complying with current legal requirements in regard to materials in contact with food, cosmetics, or chemicals.
