As we are advancing to the modern style of living, the food packaging is playing a vital role in making availability of every food item from every corner of the world. All food packaging material should be of high quality and it should provide protection to all food products. It should protect the food from contamination, damage and should ensure the required labelling requirements as per FSS Act/ Rules & Regulations.
Food products have to be packed in appropriate packaging materials. The packaging material should ensure an adequate barrier to microorganisms. They should also ensure the seal integrity like temper proof and able to seal only once. The size should be ideal for wrapping to avoid gapping & billowing.
In cases where the food or additives would get in direct touch with the food packaging material, the food grade packaging has to be used and the packaging material used should be verified and certified for the chemical analysis from a food testing laboratory. Packaging materials like aluminium, plastic & tin should be tested for physical, microbiological and chemical analysis.
The gases used during packaging should not be toxic and shall not pose any health hazards for the community.
All Food materials have to be tested from a food testing laboratory in cases of any suspicion or possible contamination before the food is made available for the sale.
