Food Thermoforming Packaging
Thermoformed food packaging refers to a type of packaging used for food products that is created by heating and molding plastic sheets into a desired shape. This process involves heating a thermoplastic material such as polypropylene or polystyrene to a specific temperature and then forming it into a specific shape by applying pressure using a mold or a vacuum. Thermoformed food packaging is commonly used for a wide range of food products, including fresh produce, meat, dairy, and bakery items. The packaging is designed to protect the food from external factors such as air, moisture, and light, and also to provide a longer shelf life for the food. Some of the benefits of thermoformed food packaging include its ability to maintain the freshness of the food, its durability, and its ability to be customized to fit specific products. Additionally, thermoformed packaging is often made from recyclable materials, which makes it a more sustainable option compared to other types of packaging.
