According to Dairy Foods, the cheese market is surging in popularity. With cheese production having increased to over 12.1 billion pounds in 2016, resealable cheese packaging in particular enables the market to address sustainability demands. Gain insight into how that’s the case.
Reduced Food Waste
Resealable packaging helps in reducing food waste. It protects cheese from exposure to air, moisture and other contaminants that can cause it to go bad and be discarded. By having an extended shelf life, it is able to maintain its freshness for longer, both in the store and at home.
Reduced Material Waste
Additionally, resealable cheese packaging reduces overall package material waste. Eliminating the need for secondary packaging and disposal, consumers see increased convenience as well.
Furthermore, less material is used in manufacturing resealable cheese packaging. This helps plant facilities lower reduce their carbon footprint as well.
Reduced Transportation and Storage Costs
As a lightweight option, resealable cheese packaging reduces costs and carbon emissions associated with transporting and storing the products.
