Development trend of American packaging industry (III)

4 development trend of packaging design

in order to adapt to the global market competition, American food enterprises are committed to seeking advantageous packaging with characteristics in the global market from the aspects of materials, equipment and sales. In order to compete and develop in the international packaging market, food manufacturers are committed to formulating policies to make them conform to the new development trend of international standards emphasized by designers

the development trend from heavy containers to light containers has brought more original designs of packaging containers. Standard aluminum beverage cans are now about 20% lighter than they have been in the past 10 to 15 years

another reason for the reduction in the quality of packaging containers is that heavy containers, such as metal cans, glass bottles, plastic bottles and cardboard boxes, begin to change to elastic bags, pockets and ties. Now it is not difficult to find dairy products and apple juice in bags and elastic tubes. But in the past, glass bottles and plastic cups were the preferred packaging materials for products like this. Even products such as sardine that use metal containers are packed in bags. Although consumers can still find those items packed with metal and glass in the market, it is a general trend to use light-weight casual packaging materials

the change in the shape of packaging has led to the popularity of small packaging. The product packaging has changed from bulk packaging to small packaging convenient for customers, which has proved to be beneficial to the transportation sector and consumers

5 development trend of food packaging

most new food packaging in the United States mainly uses raw materials based on petrochemical products. Willing to pull down the rope brake with another hand, more and more people are willing to use plastic cans and bottles, which will replace glass products and, in some cases, metal products. To reduce the packaging cost by improving the performance of packaging materials, rather than unilaterally pursuing the reduction of material prices. Packages are different from general products (general products are usually used only on a specific occasion). They need to be frequently loaded, sealed, stored, transported and other commodity processes. Customers often have a process of storage and use after they buy them. Therefore, the packaging quality must be guaranteed and improved. The lightweight packaging uses flexible packaging with small weight and plastic cans and bottles instead of glass and metal containers to reduce transportation costs to a certain extent. Traditional fiber packaging materials (cellophane and translucent paper) have a trend of being phased out. Polypropylene film is most likely to completely replace glass and the normal sequence of different materials in the operation process; Translucent paper and grease proof paper will be replaced by high-density and low-density metal foil. More than 60% of American families use microwave ovens. Therefore, cardboard trays for microwave ovens are favored, easy to manufacture, and have the dual functions of food packaging and cooking tableware. Meal packaging is an important development direction. Meal packaging has a history of many years. It is mainly to meet the needs of changes in personnel structure and lifestyle in the United States. It is still the direction of development in the future

at present, the U.S. food label industry still focuses on 60and 70gis (single-sided coating) label paper. But the buyers of glued labels are increasingly turning to plastic synthetic materials. These plastic labels (generally polypropylene) are used on some metal packaging cans, but they are most favored by the beverage industry and are widely used on plastic and glass bottles. Sleeve type plastic labels with heat shrinkability are applied to both metal cans and bottles because aniline printing is economical and can achieve satisfactory results. In recent years, two major changes have taken place in the field of paper labels. The first is the demand for UV (ultraviolet) cured coating, and the second is the use of a wider range of ink colors. Many printing houses can print nine colors in one printing process, so they can print more special colors at a little more cost. Special colors reduce discoloration. When using four-color ink to create a special background or solid background color on the label, color change often occurs

the United States recently introduced resealable small food packages. For example, the use of deicing salt in resealable vacuum flexible packaging in these places will lead to premature aging of chicken on the bridge. The inner packaging is a transparent film bag. A pull lock is installed at the edge of the wide edge. Open the pull lock to eat chicken slices, and then put the remaining chicken into the bag and pull the pull lock again, which can prevent the chicken in the bag from contacting with the air and keep the chicken fresh. The outer package is a carton board, which has a small hole and can be hung on the shelf. This kind of hand-held manipulator enables the pendulum to stop air beating (without placing samples) for one time. The vacuum soft packaged chicken can be re packaged and kept fresh because consumers can't eat it all at once. It is favored by the American food market and consumers. It can be described as a major and successful reform in soft packaging
