There are several factors that companies look for in food packaging container manufacturers. These include available materials, cost, production time, and food safety concerns. A vital part of food safety is ensuring that retail packaging and food storage does not pose a health risk. That’s why the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) carefully oversees the types of food and storage packaging that is allowed in grocery stores and other marketplaces. Laszeray Technology is known as the leading name when it comes to the best food storage and food packaging container manufacturers, and our in-house design and engineering team can utilize the CNC machine approach to manufacturing, or other methods that may be best suited for each individual client and project. We have years of experience with manufacturing food containers and food packaging, from plastic water bottles to salad dressing containers, and from solid wall crate stackable food storage products, to high volume nestable food containers that include ventilated and nesting tub containers, we utilize many types of plastics commonly used in the industry, including polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE).
Whether you need food packaging container manufacturers that can design and produce suitable storage for meat and cheese, or packaging containers for bread and other bakery products, our food storage containers meet OHSAS 18001 standards and work to uphold the packaged consumable item’s integrity.
Our Packaging Containers are Constructed with Food Grade Plastic
As a brand in need of food storage and food packaging containers, it is important to understand exactly what food grade plastic is. The term “food grade” is often confused with “food safe” in the industry, and though they are related, they are not the same. Food grade plastic is a material that’s regarded as being safe for storing and processing consumables. When it comes to “food grade”, every component of the food container is required to comply with the standard to qualify as being food grade. Food grade plastics include high-density polyethylene, polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene terephthalate. Laszeray is well versed in the manufacturing and engineering of food grade and food safe plastic resin products.
Laszeray and Food Grade Plastic Injection Molding
Injection molding is a manufacturing process that has been proven to be highly adept at creating a wide array of food packaging and containers. It works with nearly any type of plastic resin. The process essentially involves creating a metal mold, injecting molten material into it, and then allowing the injected material to cool and harden.
The advantages of plastic injection molding for food storage containers are many. It can create even highly complicated designs that would be impractical with conventional assembly methods. Whether you need a large volume of materials or a relatively small amount, the process can easily accommodate your requirements.
Plastic injection molding is commonly used to create storage packaging made from high-density polyethylene (recycling number 2), a strong, inexpensive, and easily recyclable FDA-approved material with high chemical resistance. HDPE is often used to make containers for beverages and food that is stored cold. Another common option is polypropylene (recycling number 5), which has a high melting point and is especially suitable for creating microwave-safe containers.
If your company is undecided about the type of plastic or design that would be ideal for your food packaging or food containers, you can rely on Laszeray to provide expert guidance that draws upon our decades of industry experience.
