The demand for good quality food packaging machines is growing. As consumers grow more conscious of hygiene, storage and portability issues, as manufacturers seek to produce more with less downtime and expand their markets, as international standards become mandatory in a globalised world - packaging technology is the obvious answer. While the demand for packaging machines has been growing steadily, the pandemic has made it soar! In India, where so much of the market is unorganised and un-branded, even those small food product producers are shifting to professional, automated packaging to preserve and increase their clientele. In supermarkets and restaurants, for frozen foods, pre-made meals, etc., they are using shrink-wrapping or film-covered sealed trays to ensure the products are untouched and safe from the virus.
