Frozen Food Packaging

In the fast-paced world we live in today, convenience is the commodity everyone wants. Companies are scrambling to offer it, and the food industry is no exception. Frozen food products are among the most commonly purchased in the world.

Frozen foods retain vitamins and minerals while retaining carbohydrate, protein, and fat content. In some cases, frozen foods may contain more vitamins and minerals than fresh foods. This is because freezing preserves nutrients. 

Materials that can withstand low temperatures while bearing high-quality printing are needed for the packaging of frozen foods. Packaging integrity and design must be taken into account.

Frozen Food Packaging Materials and Design: Crucial Considerations

When it comes to frozen food, particularly poultry and meat packaging, there are additional factors to be considered. External factors like moisture could greatly affect the quality. Food-grade material that can withstand freezing temperatures is needed to keep food fresh.

High Quality & Food Grade Materials

Food expands by up to 10% in moisture content when frozen. That is why food-grade packaging material must be both flexible and durable. Choosing the right materials can be the difference between effective and ineffective packaging. The following are the most important considerations:

  • Its ability to withstand freezing and cold temperatures;
  • Food grade plastics are used to ensure safety;
  • And materials are strong enough to withstand handling and transportation.

Eye-Catching & User-Friendly Design

Frozen vegetables and other products are behind a wall of glass in any grocery store. Most of the time, this glass is fogged over, making it difficult to see inside. That is why design is a vital part of packaging frozen food. It needs to not just be convenient, but also eye-catching in order to stand out.

Sustainable Options

Apart from convenient and high-quality packaging design, consumers are also asking for more sustainable packaging options. Frozen food manufacturers are increasingly using recycled or recyclable flexible bags. These packaging alternatives are both food-safe and environmentally friendly.
