behavior at present, the freight from Indonesia to southern China port is 2.5 ⑶ 5 dollars/ton (70000 tons); (4) the change of USD/ton (50.6 million tons) is inevitable. Whether we like it or not, the pressure of daily busy work and life forces people to give up the traditional cooking methods in the past. Nowadays, most people don't want to spend time in the kitchen. It's more meaningful to spend energy on work or entertainment. Therefore, consumers are always asking for the convenience of food. They hope that the preparation time of food can be shorter, and the tableware does not need to be cleaned after use, and so on. These must rely on packaging to provide solutions

Since the mid-1990s, the retail performance of microwave ovens has been rising, from 1.6 million in 1997 to 2.5 million in 2002. The wide application of microwave ovens has promoted the development of microwave food packaging, especially some prefabricated foods that need heating, baked potato chips and pizza. This also drives food manufacturers to adopt more high-quality microwave packaging

at present, people generally prefer small packaged food, which poses a challenge to packaging. How to mark all information on Limited packaging has become a problem. Today, packaging has become a big stage for displaying health, nutrition, formula, storage and cooking instructions. In addition, it must also indicate all the information required by the law

according to the results of a survey of 700 food manufacturers, PP is the preferred packaging material for many convenience food manufacturers

"the high barrier property of PP can prolong the shelf life of food. Therefore, shelf life is the third consideration of food manufacturers after the strength and price of packaging materials." Robert Witherington of the consumer goods department of huhtmaki said. "About 75% of food processors believe that packaging innovation is crucial to their business development, while 85% believe that it is the key to the successful entry of products into the market. 50% of companies change the outer packaging of products every two years, and only 6% of companies have never changed the packaging."

eatwell is a user of ecovent packaging. After adopting this packaging, the growth of volume will give way to the improvement of quality, and the company's products have made significant progress in both sales and market share. According to the prediction of industry experts, its products will have a huge impact on the market

the package has won several awards and has a high reputation in the industry. Due to its special structure and material properties, it can automatically adjust the air permeability and the pressure when heating, so it shows better baking results than the usual oven. At present, ecovent packaging is only limited to flat pillow packaging applications, but suedpack is considering how to apply the system to semi-rigid materials for thermoforming and preformed pallet processing

the company also produces a semi-rigid multi-layer composite called ecoderm. The main substrates are PP and EVOH, which can also be used for microwave heating

according to linpac plastics, safety and hygiene are the primary principles for the company to develop microwave packaging materials. Linpac has recently developed a series of cool to touch products to expand the range of microwave products. This is a foam tray. As the name describes, even if the food is heated to a very high temperature, it can easily contact the packaging container and will not be scalded

cool to touch series has two types of controlled atmosphere or non controlled atmosphere, which ensures the freshness, hygiene and safety of food

with the development of tray technology, microwave food will be closer to the quality of home cooked food, retain the texture and flavor of food, and some traditional stews can be heated by microwave
