The plastic packaging protects food from mechanical damage, the influence of temperature, oxygen, water vapor and odor, and thus extends the lifetime of the food and reduces the amount of spoiled food.
The packaging is also an important marketing tool, which influences consumer choice. The packaging delivers information about the content of the food, divides them into portions and ensures comfortable handling at the store, and during transportation, opening and use.
BOPP film is the most widely used type of food packaging. The polypropylene films contain no hazardous substances and are approved for contact with food.
