A Good Packaging Should Perform The Following Functions:

Protection: The food stored in the packaging requires protection from various factors such as vibration, shock, compression, temperature, and so forth.

Packaging must offer a barrier against oxygen, dust, water vapour, and other contaminants. A fundamental role is to keep the contents of the food fresh, clean, and safe for the specified shelf life.

Containment: Small food products are usually bundled together in one packaging for efficiency. Granular and powder food materials requires proper containment.

Label Information: All food product packaging must include labels stating the nutrition data, how to use, dispose of, the date of manufacture, and the expiration date of the package or product.

Marketing: Adequate food packaging with accurate information is critical in enticing potential customers to purchase the product, and in this instance, the food packaging design is equally significant. The more appealing the packaging design, the more likely it will be purchased.

Security: Proper packing may play an essential role in lowering shipping security hazards. There is no risk of food containers being damaged or polluted during shipment owing to tamper-evident features.

Convenience: Food packaging should contain characteristics that make handling, stacking, distribution, sale, display, re-closing, opening, usage, and reuse convenient.

Portion control: Finally, food packaging gives information on the exact quantity of components contained in that specific product.
