Packaging Films for Food Products

Packaging films are often used to wrap food related products like produce, meats, candy bars, snack bars, frozen or microwavable  foods. The wrappings are referred to as films.


Plastic pellets are heated up, melted and extruded to form the plastic film.  The film can be clear, opaque or high gloss and made from polypropylene, and polyethylene. Some packaging films offer high-barrier properties like laminated metallized films. They provide protective properties for food items requiring restrictive visibility and will increase the product’s shelf-life, and freshness.
