What is Biscuit Packaging? What are the Features?

Packaging in food products is much more than delivering the product to the consumer safely and comfortably. All stages are very important, from the material chosen when manufacturing the packaging to the design that affects its appearance. The package directly affects the attractiveness of the product on the shelves and provides the consumer with legally required information about the type, age, price, content, weight, and manufacturing conditions of the product. The shape of the package also directly affects the way the product is displayed on store shelves. Products packaged in a round shape tend to be placed on shelves suitable for selection by rolling, while products packaged with wing-shaped ends tend to be placed adjacent to each other. Products packaged in the form of simple sachets are not allocated much space on the shelves. Since the purchase rates are quite high based on the appearance of the product, all factors in the shape and design of the package should be well considered. As UCSA packaging, we meticulously create all processes from design to manufacture, and we choose the raw materials we choose for recycling.

Biscuit Packaging Features

The choice of packaging is very important for products with a long shelf life, such as biscuits, as air intake will shorten their shelf life. When choosing the packaging method of biscuits, methods with high protection properties that use a barrier to prevent moisture intake should be preferred.

As moisture barriers;

  • Plastic (polypropylene)
  • Plastic-coated paper
  • Various laminates
  • Polyester (PET)
  • A wide variety of materials can be used, including aluminum foil and cardboard materials. Modified atmosphere packaging is also an option for biscuit packaging.

To prevent the biscuits from breaking and losing their appeal, the package protects the product against visible light and UV radiation, while also protecting it from damage during transportation.
