Food Packaging and the New Regulations


What is the best material for food packaging?

What measures should be followed for the protection of food in the new normal?

Monomers are derived from renewable sources of energy but for their conversion into polymers a chemical transformation is required, this is the case of starch or cornstarch.

Even without exact figures, but in this current pandemic situation, the setback we have had in the excessive consumption of plastic products is evident in various parts of the world. The new normal in terms of packaging is concerned imperatively called on the producer of everything related to plastic to accelerate its production in the products that are classified as disposable.

The current pandemic calls into question the sanitary methods that were used to sell food both in the supermarket and specialized establishments, particularly in specific products such as butchers, mills, fruit and vegetable vending machines, tortillerias, bread sales, candy stores among many others, like the same sale, but in entertainment establishments and restaurants; not to mention the excessive use of packaging material in the now much requested e-commerce. Such sanitary methods have resorted to the excessive use for the moment of plastic material for the accommodation and separation of food in order to make them and ensure them totally clean.

Without any legal regulation, the production of playo or any packaging film made from polyethylene resin has been increased again, plastic bags of different sizes to pack what is already packed individually and move from the counter to the means of transport and get the “take-away food” to its destination; plastic materials to bag in popular markets, the excessive production of PET plastic containers and containers for food safety and we insist, in this pandemic situation where priority has been given to “everything to take away” and the use of any type of plastic container and container to increase “food safety and cleanliness”. The vast majority of these are plastics produced from non-renewable sources of energy such as oil or gas.

Food regulation and packaging

The competent authorities and organizations will have to legislate again and put into practice detailed analyzes and examinations that will lead us to the expected results to have the obligation to produce plastic materials that derive from renewable energy sources but that for their conversion into polymer requires a chemical transformation such as starch or cornstarch.
