Right-Sizing Packaging & Design Requirements

The design and manufacture of packages and its materials can be a complex environment. But in the right hands, it is not. For every challenge, never a problem, there is a solution. For those that need it there are packaging and design solutions to every challenge they may have encountered previously. Previously they may have encountered issues to do with securing their packaged – or were they even packaged? – goods and materials.

There has always been a fine line drawn. The makeup of the packaging material can have an immediate or indirect impact on the shelf life of a particular product. Take the matter for providing fresh food to mass markets for example. No matter how well it is sealed, not even that can extend the life of fresh produce. But right-sizing the sealing materials can play its positive part in preserving the ingredients, retaining a semblance of freshness and also ensuring that the food is safe for consumption.

Take the matter of pasteurized milk for instance. The moment you open the plastic or glass container; you already know that that milk product must be refrigerated. And even when in the fridge, you already know that the milk’s shelf life goes no further than a few days at best. But then along came the innovation of long-life milk. And note how much longer such a container is able to retain the milk’s freshness.

Not just for a few days but right into the next week, perhaps even longer. Packaging and design solutions are vital for the right sizing of dangerous and vulnerable materials. These materials must be prevented from causing harm to the public. And yet they must also be protected from the public. Such is the importance of packaging and design solutions.
