Food Packaging and labelling

Food packaging prevents contamination and allows food to be transported easily. It also extends the shelf life depending on the type of packaging. Even in food packaging, many concerns are raised that the chemicals which are used to pack the food products migrate into the food, thus raising the health issues due to the certain product. The food packaging also has labelling with information about the contents, ingredients, nutritional content, cooking instructions and shelf life of the food. The packaging needs to be designed such that there is little to no interaction between the food and packaging
