What is Barrier Packaging?
Barrier packaging prevents permeation of contents through the packaging to the environment and preserves the quality of the product in the packaging.
Why is barrier packaging important?
Barrier packaging is important to prevent permeation of the content’s ingredients. This enables keeping flavors and aromas in, increasing shelf life and preventing product loss.
Benefits of plastic barrier packaging
Plastic packaging delivers a wide range of protective properties while ensuring a minimum amount of material being used. The advantages of plastic are design flexibility, light weight, recyclability, and cost effectiveness.
