With all its vibrant and dynamic nature the food packaging industry has entered new horizons with the help technology and this is not going to end here. The rise in demands all over UAE markets for packed food items have pushed the role players to tie their laces and produce improved volumes.
The operators associated with this industry are well aware and have read the script well about the needs and expectations of their target audience who are more in favor of novelty and innovative solutions.
Let’s have a quick look of the different innovative landmarks that have been met by food packaging companies in Dubai:
The substitution of material:
Past few decades have seen noteworthy transformations in different sectors that are associated with the said industry. Companies operating here are now not limited to just one material for the sake of packing, the now rely on and have master the usage of materials like paper, metal, glass and plastics, this enables them to substitute the materials as and when required depending on the nature of item that requires packing.
Lighter in weight:
This is yet another core focal point that has been mastered by the operators both for the safety and convenience of the users. Food items are now being packed in lighter and lasting containers.
Packaging on its own alone may not be as successful like the way it would be when accompanied with best, appealing and informative labeling. Therefore, this factor must not be overlooked at any point in time.
A lot has been said through seminars, conferences and awareness programs about the sustainable packaging, yet there is no consensus as to what actually it is. One may still come across many operators in this industry who may still be confused and clueless about it and same goes with the end consumers.
The problem is that there is no single definition that can cover this wide topic. But never the less fingers cross, operators that are actively performing this industry are sure that they will cover this gap soon and they better do so in order to ensure that environment safety is kept intact all the way through from start to finish.
Some other advances that are the core focus of food packaging companies in Dubai are:
- Bio-based but not bio-gradable plastic materials
- Innovative approaches
- ALD – Atomic Layer Deposition
The positive thing about industries in UAE are their compliance with the local legal, environment framework which helps in sustaining the environment and at the same time maintaining the set standards when it comes to the hygiene factors.
