With the progression of commercialization and the expansion into different parts of the world, it has become crucial to ensure that products are well preserved and stored to reach their destinations intact.

Then we saw the arrival of packaging and how it became indispensable in the daily life of humanity, being one of the main elements responsible for product protection.

The packaging protects and preserves the product from production to commercialization and consumption.

Maintaining its integrity and protecting the product from contamination by microorganisms or other infectious agents and from various transport and daily threats.

The Importance of Packaging

The importance of packaging is directly related to its function, that is, to deliver the product safely and with quality to the consumer.

In addition to protecting it, it also helps conserve the product. For example, some products like frozen items need help in freezing processes to withstand high or low temperatures and even increase the product's shelf life.

It is an element that also facilitates the transport and storage of the product for both companies and consumers.

With modernization came practicality; it is easier to move products both in industrial and domestic environments with more sophisticated and resistant packaging without compromising the composition and structure of the product.
