Function 1: Protect food and extend the shelf life of food


During the entire circulation process, food has to go through handling, loading and unloading, transportation and storage, which can easily cause damage to the appearance of the food. After the food is packaged inside and outside of a professional food packaging machine, the food can be well protected to avoid damage.



Function 2: Protect the original quality of food


The quality of food will change and deteriorate during the entire circulation process. If the food is packaged aseptically or processed by high temperature sterilization and refrigeration after packaging, it will prevent the occurrence of food spoilage and extend the shelf life of the food.


At the same time, the food itself has a certain amount of water. When the content of these water changes, it will cause the change or deterioration of the food flavor. If the corresponding moisture-proof packaging machine and technology are used, the above phenomenon can be prevented, and the shelf life of food can be effectively extended.


When food is in circulation, when it is directly irradiated by sunlight and light, and at high temperatures, it is easy to cause food to oxidize, change color, and change flavor. For example, the use of corresponding functional packaging machines for vacuum packaging, inflatable packaging and other technologies and corresponding food packaging materials. It can also effectively extend the shelf life of packaged foods.



Function 3: Packaged food is convenient for circulation


Some packages are containers for food circulation, such as bottled alcohol, beverages, cans, etc. These packaged bottles, cans, and bags are not only packaging containers, but also transfer tools for food circulation and sales. It brings great convenience to food circulation.



Function 4: Increase the variety of convenience foods


Some convenience foods have local flavors. They can only be circulated after being packaged. The exchange of famous and high-quality foods from all over the country can increase the variety of people's daily food. Furthermore, fresh foods, such as quick-frozen dumplings, packaged meals and preservation techniques, can be convenient for people to eat.



Function 5: Prevent food contamination


Convenient retort foods must be in contact with containers and human hands when they are in circulation, which is likely to cause food to be contaminated. Special packaging machine technology is used to avoid this phenomenon after packaging, which is beneficial to the health of consumers.



Function 6:Promote the rationality and planning of food circulation


Some fresh foods are perishable and difficult to transport, such as fruits and aquatic products. Various cans are made in the place of production, which can reduce waste, reduce transportation costs, and promote the rationality and planning of food circulation.
