May 16, 2012

Food packaging is an essential section in the food industry wherein it is chosen by a lot of business enthusiasts as an investment. Indeed there could be a variety of ways in food packaging that people could avail high profit; however, without the proper application of an effective strategy, business in the food packaging industry might be a failure. These so called strategies include the machinery, marketing, quality, safety, and handling. For machinery, the use of automated packaging machines is an advantage over the others that are still using manually operated machines. Manual operation in packaging is very time consuming which decreases the productivity rate. 

Unlike with the automated packaging machines that there is a high percentage of productivity that it can supply more than enough with the needs of the consumers. The automatic design of the current food packaging machines has allowed food manufacturers to provide reliable and efficient functions in the food industry. Food manufacturers must be encouraged to use only the automated packaging machines in order for them to efficiently work and be successful in their field. It can also help in marketing because most automatic food packaging machines are designed to perform multi-tasks and not just packaging itself. Some of these machines can do labeling too! With proper and accurate labeling, it gives the products a more professional look and therefore entices consumers more. Even though the product is of best quality but if not market properly, manufacturers would have a hard time or would not be able to reach its maximum sale. Take note that marketing in any kind of industry is a one important requirement.

Handling in automatic food packaging machines also guarantees quality and safety because there is less contamination caused by manual labor. Since the machines are automated, every task or operation is done by the machine itself.  Then, the application of modified atmosphere packaging to several packaging machines have greatly improved the reliability, productivity, and safety of food products because it offers no chemical preservatives that can harm consumers.  Modified atmosphere packaging or also known as MAP technology only uses natural gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide in preserving the food products lifespan and can even extend it for quite a long time. Modifying the gases inside the packaging is the secret why modified atmosphere packaging has been successful in prolonging the shelf life of so many food products. Thus, we can say that developments in our technology today have several impacts in improving our lives for the better.
