Food Grains, Pulses, and Sugar

Packaging and storage of food grains and sugar is a tough job. Both are hygroscopic and thermally active. Ideal conditions for these commodities should have adequate mechanical properties and should sustain the quality in long-term storage. Dayana Polyplast Consider the packaging needs of both International and Indian standards during manufacturing as per the requirement of clients. In India, BIS standards have been formulated for Plastic woven sacks for foodgrain (IS 14887:2000) and sugar (IS: 14968: 2001) Packaging. Various studies and field trials have been conducted both in food storage go-downs and laboratories to establish the suitability of PP Woven Sacks for long-term storage of food grains and sugar. The outcome of these studies and trials compared to other conventional materials of packaging can be summarized as under:
• PP Woven Sacks restrict moisture permeation and insect penetration
• Lower temperature during storage hence lesser insect germination
• Better insecticide persistency to reduce its application and cost
• Odour of the stored commodity is not altered
• Mechanical properties of PP Woven Sacks (tensile strength and stretchability) are superior

Dairy Products, Milk, and Milk Products

Dairy Industry is of crucial importance to India. Dairy products are a major source of cheap and nutritious food for millions of people in the world including India.
• Almost 20% of the total milk produced is being packed and handled by the Organized sector. Out of this 85% of milk is packed in flexible PE pouches. PE pouches are made of LDPE materials.
• Plastic pouches are an economical and durable packing medium for pasteurized milk.
• Other materials used for packaging milk are glass bottles, tetra packs, and plastic containers. Amongst these, Plastic containers are a better choice for packaging.
• Other dairy products for which plastics are used for packing are Curd, Butter ghee, and sweets.

Processed / Semi Processed Food / Bakery products

Invent of plastic flexible packaging has given a boost to processed food consumption all over the world. Plastics offer all the packaging needs of processed foods from barrier properties, microwave-ability, and shelf life to aesthetics.
• Plastic packaging offers better oxygen and moisture barrier properties, for example
• Food packed in PP thermoformed trays can be microwaved before consumption
• Shelf life of pickles, spices, cookies, bread, and many other products is enhanced considerably when packed in pouches made from plastics films
• The appearance of the pouches can be enhanced with modern printing and lamination techniques thus offering a better brand image which leads to more value addition, for example, BOPP for biscuit packaging, 3 layer PET/PE laminates for potato chips.

Ready-to-eat food

Retortable and ready-to-eat foods are being very common because of the present lifestyle. Both flexible and rigid plastics are used for the packing of these products. Microwave ability, better shelf life, hygiene, and aesthetics are the positive factors that are in favour of plastic packaging materials.

Nuts and Dry fruits

Dry fruits are often categorized as exotic food items. Its nutritive value and appeal are unmatched across the world. Whether for personal consumption or export purposes, dry fruit needs to be packaged perfectly to retain its freshness, texture, crispiness, flavor, and nutritional properties. Packaging, therefore, plays a crucial role in these kinds of products.

It must be packed in dry fruit packaging pouches that are moisture-proof and air-tight. Besides, it must be transported in ideal condition and should not be damaged in transit.
