New Trends in Food Packaging Equipment
The global food market is rising and that is leading to an increase in the need for packaging machinery. According to a recent Design News article, packaging companies are looking for flexible machinery that can easily handle different sizes and structures to meet the changing needs of consumers. These frequently changing trends help to ensure that markets such as North America and Europe will always have demand.
Currently the US packaged food industry is valued at $2.15 billion and is expected to reach $3.21 billion by 2019. Other emerging markets such as China and the Middle East are helping the market rise even higher and pushing the global food packaging machinery market to $19 billion by 2019.
Although there is global demand, many of the food packaging manufacturers are based in the US, which need to create advanced packaging technologies to fulfill the use of more innovative packaging materials.
At Stam we have experience working with the food industry to create tubing that can carry food and most importantly keep it sanitary. Our tube bending process allows us to fabricate tubes that are free of any voids or scratches on the inside so microbes won’t be able to hide in any crevices during the cleaning process.
