Overview of food packaging machinery and processin

  • Detail

The American packaging industry started in the early 20th century and has developed rapidly since World War II. It has gradually established and formed a complete and independent industrial system including packaging materials, packaging technology and packaging machinery. Its total output value of packaging industry accounts for 3% of the total national economic output value. The largest use industry of its packaging machinery is the food industry, followed by the beverage industry, household cleaning products and cosmetics industry, pharmaceutical products and tobacco industry

from the current situation, the global demand for packaging machinery is expected to grow at an annual rate of 5.3%, reaching US $29billion by 2005. The United States has the largest packaging equipment manufacturer, followed by Japan. Other major manufacturers include Germany, Italy and China. However, by 2005, the fastest growth of packaging equipment production was in developing countries and regions. Developed countries will benefit from stimulating domestic demand, and look for suitable local manufacturers in developing countries, especially to invest in food processing plants and provide packaging machinery and equipment

the packaging machinery of foam granulator in the United States has a promising future at present: the horizontal pillow type microcomputer controlled packaging machinery equipped with servo motor and electric control device with good film tension. In the future, microelectronics, computers, industrial robots, intelligent, image sensing technology and new materials will be more and more widely used in packaging machinery, making packaging machinery more and more automated, efficient and energy-saving

food processing industry

in the U.S. food industry, the annual demand for packaging machinery for vegetables and fruits accounted for the largest proportion, accounting for 20.3% by 2005; The packaging machinery required for meat products is the second; Dairy products ranked third, bread fourth and candy fifth. Except for meat products, the proportion of the annual demand value of dairy products and candy packaging machinery in the total demand value of food and industry showed a downward trend. Other industries are mainly composed of household cleaning products and cosmetics, tobacco products, pharmaceutical products and daily necessities. The annual demand of other industries for packaging machinery accounts for about 1/3 of the total annual demand

the United States is a country that attaches great importance to food safety. When European countries are troubled by food crises such as mad cow disease and foot-and-mouth disease, American consumers are very reassured about their own food safety. In the United States, there are many laws and regulations that affirm the safety and pressure resistance of cartons and the food safety of the code quality index standards, including comprehensive laws and regulations, such as the federal food, drug and Cosmetics Act, the food quality protection act and the public health service act, as well as the very specific federal Meat Inspection Act. These laws and regulations cover all kinds of food, "Larsen said, setting very specific standards and regulatory procedures for food safety

the Department responsible for food safety of the federal government, together with the corresponding departments of the local government, constitutes a comprehensive and effective safety assurance system, which strictly supervises all links of food production and sales. At present, the United States mainly has two departments responsible for food inspection. One is the food safety and inspection administration under the Ministry of agriculture, which is responsible for the inspection of all foods except meat, poultry and eggs. Other government agencies have the mission of ensuring food safety, including food safety research, education, prevention, monitoring, standard setting and emergency response. For example, the center for Disease Control and prevention is responsible for the investigation and prevention of all food borne diseases

these food inspection institutions have a large number of highly specialized experts, such as chemists, microbiologists, toxicologists, food technologists, pathologists, molecular biologists, pharmacologists, nutritionists, epidemiologists, mathematicians and hygienists. Their work includes inspecting food companies, collecting and analyzing samples, monitoring imported products, inspecting pre-sales behavior, engaging in consumer research and consumer education. If the food does not meet the safety standards, it is not allowed to go on sale. Consumers can report problems at any time
