March 15, 2012

Environmental issues about food packaging have been a burden to most communities globally. Despite of the advances in the food industry, there are several issues that are being questioned by a lot of people with regards to the effect of food processing and packaging in the environment. The advent of food packaging machines has also stirred a lot of criticisms in the society whether is it beneficial for the food industry or the other way around.

When automatic food packaging machines were introduced in the market, it was undeniable that a lot of food manufacturers were so convinced of the ability of the machines to deliver a total packaging solution that would meet and secure food supply for the consumers and sales growth too. In order for us to know the role and the effects of packaging machine in your society, let us bear in mind the major objecting of packaging. Basically, food packaging aims for food protection, right? Different machines such as poultry and pork packaging machines were designed to protect meat products from biological, physical, and chemical damages.

Biological protection is responsible in preventing the growth of aerobic or non aerobic microbial organisms that causes the deterioration of most food products especially raw foods. As of today, there is this technology called modified atmosphere packaging that has received so many praises everywhere.  Modified atmosphere packaging or MAP technology has been one of the most established and effective weapon and armor used for biological protection because the growth of micro organisms is highly prevented without the use of chemical preservatives. Most pork packaging machines in the market today has the application of MAP in order to provide flexible service to food manufacturers. Chemical protection is also catered by modified atmosphere packaging because it manages the compositional changes in food products. Food’s composition is affected by the environment such as gas and light exposure that produces moisture and bad odor.  Just imaging how great is the ability of MAP technology in the food industry today.

Physical protection on the other hand is responsible in preventing mechanical damages that might be incurred to food products from distribution and storage. Pork packaging machines especially those that are automated have excellent mechanisms that allow strong cushions that prevent shock and vibration to food products. Aside from the automation of packaging machines, packaging materials or bags are also responsible for physical protection. With the amount of contributions of the advancements mentioned above, it is only right to say that food packaging machines are beneficial to the food industry and the society as a whole.
