Food packaging is challenging due to various factors needed to ensure the food arrives at its destination in good condition.
Some key packaging challenges include protecting the goods from impacts, vibration, and temperature changes that can cause the packaging to fail or the food to spoil.
Excessive moisture can cause the packaging to break down and become weakened; with too little moisture, the food can dry out and lose its freshness.
Packaging must also protect the food from contamination from outside sources such as dust, dirt, and other pollutants.
Overall, packaging food for transport requires careful consideration of various factors to ensure the food arrives at its destination in good condition and is safe for consumption.
We build our packaging to withstand the harshness of transportation, including handling, loading, unloading, and shipping.
Our packaging materials are chosen for their durability and ability to absorb shock and vibrations, providing a cushioning effect for your products. In addition, we test and certify the packaging to ensure that it meets industry standards for protection and safety during transportation.
Many types of food are sensitive to temperature changes, and exposure to extremes of heat or cold can cause spoilage, bacterial growth, or loss of flavor and texture.
Temperature-controlled packaging controls and regulates the food’s temperature during transport, preventing it from becoming too hot or cold. Temperature control involves using insulation, refrigeration, or heating elements, depending on the specific requirements of the food.
Proper temperature control in food packaging is essential for ensuring that the food arrives at its destination in good condition and is safe for consumption.

Excessive moisture can cause packaging to weaken, become damaged or lose its protective qualities.
Conversely, insufficient moisture can prevent the food from drying out, losing texture, flavor, and nutrition.
Moisture control in packaging uses water-resistant materials, such as plastic or foil. Additionally, some packaging may have features like ventilation or moisture-absorbing materials to control the amount of moisture inside the packaging.
Proper moisture control is essential to ensure that the food arrives at its destination in good condition and is safe for consumption.
Effective packaging communicates brand values, quality, and unique selling proposition, helping to differentiate it from competitors.

Packaging also offers convenience, such as resealable closures or easy-to-open designs, enhancing the customer experience and building brand loyalty.
Contamination can occur from various sources, including dust, dirt, bacteria, and other pollutants.
ABP uses various packaging materials to prevent contamination from entering the packaging during transport, storage, and handling. Contamination prevention can include using materials impervious to moisture, such as plastic or foil, or designing packaging that seals tightly to prevent contamination.
Proper protection from contamination is essential for ensuring that the food is safe for consumption and meets the required health and safety standards.
The widespread use of plastic packaging in the food industry has led to a massive accumulation of plastic waste, causing severe environmental problems such as pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
The production and disposal of non-sustainable food packaging can lead to adverse health impacts on both humans and wildlife. As a result, there is a growing need for sustainable packaging alternatives that reduce waste, conserve resources, and minimize environmental harm while maintaining the quality and safety of food products.
ABP’s food packaging products help you get food through the supply chain safely in good condition and protect food against impacts and environmental factors while optimizing space and sustainability.
