The packaging evolution

The packaging is commonly defined as an object made of various materials, with the intention of storing, protecting, transporting, shipping or presenting the products inside. Historically, the primary function of packaging is to protect the product, and facilitate transport. Over the years, however, he has also taken on other roles: information and marketing.
As for the protective role, traditionally, the product's packaging plays a fundamental role in the conservation and transport of the same, preventing any damage and extending its duration. This takes on even greater importance in the food industry, where products, often perishable, need to be stored in specific conditions. Innovation in the field of packaging allows the use of new materials that ensure greater integrity of the product itself, a longer shelf-life, and also a greater sustainability.
