We are what we eat, as individuals and as a nation. Fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, fish, nuts, produce and dairy products make up the foundation of the healthy diet. But none of these foods are nutritious if they aren’t eaten when they are fresh, and high quality foods must remain free of unnecessary preservatives and chemicals whenever possible.
At the same time, businesses must keep costs low to control operating costs and meet market demands. Institutions such as schools face competing needs to keep food inexpensive, while healthier, due to budget cuts and new federal food regulations. Consumers expect their food to be fresh for as long as possible. And grocery stores need their increasingly purchased bulk foods to last longer on the shelves. That’s where selecting the right food packaging materials can help.
Managing Food Cost and Quality
At the intersection of food cost and quality are new technologies that keep food fresher for longer, without ruining the food’s quality with unnecessary contamination. Point 5 Packaging brings businesses, educational institutions and consumers the food packaging solutions they require using our unique line of products that employ Modified Atmosphere Packaging with no need for a mechanical vacuum. Some of our unique solutions include:
- Restaurants and other food vendors can expect both from A-PET (Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate) containers that keep chilled and room temperature foods fresh, and with a clear and attractive container.
- Schools can use our microwave and freezer-safe C-PET (Crystallized Polyethylene Terephthalate) containers to keep pre-made food fresh. These containers are excellent at maintaining food cooked in the tray or added later.
