What is Dry Food Packaging? How Should It Be?

As with other types of food packaging, dry food packaging is packaging that protects the product at every stage. Packaging for dry food should protect the products from transportation processes until they reach the end user. The most important factor for this protection to be healthy and long-lasting is, of course, the quality of the packaging. Correct selection of the materials and production techniques means quality packaging manufacture.

What are the Uses of Dry Food Packaging?

Dry food packaging is generally used for products such as pasta, dried beans, rice, noodles, spices, salt, sugar, pulses, and dry pet food. Double-layer structures consisting of CPP or PE laminated to reverse-printed BOPP are the most preferred and most suitable dry food products. Packaging techniques are very important for these products that can be stored at room temperature. For these products, which can be kept in areas vulnerable to the outside world, in transportation vehicles and warehouses where temperature and temperature cannot be adjusted, their packaging is the most important thing that protects them.

What are the Characteristics of Dry Food Packaging?

While protecting the food, the packaging should also provide information about the product. Although it is quite flexible for dry foods, information such as the expiry date, the ingredients used in the production of the food, and the place where the food is supplied should be written on the packaging. Some food production companies also provide cute little clues about the food on the packaging. For example, a pasta company gives its customers an easy and quick recipe on the packaging. With this practice, the brand sells its customers an experience that is more than just the product.

Another important feature that dry food packaging should have is a clear description of how to open it. Of course, anyone can open a package. However, for sensitive products such as food, which are offered for use as soon as they are opened, the moment of opening should be considered along with the strength of the packaging. It should be able to be opened with a light force without forcing the person, and should not cause an accident with a forceful force.

The graphic design and color of the packaging give identity to the packaged product. It is possible to recognize your product meters away just by the color of your packaging. Therefore, the color and design chosen for the packaging are very important in the pre-printing process.
