Aluminum foil is finding large application in packaging in the food industry. Aluminum foil is widely used as a compact storage for electric charges. Nowadays, aluminum foil is being merged with flexible films to create lightweight packages. This allows packages to expand during packaging and contract as soon as the product is consumed. Manufacturers are focusing on producing a top quality of aluminum foil packages. However, a small change in the process can impact the product quality. Hence, machines and techniques used in aluminium foil packages are well tested, researched and developed.
Aluminum foil is gaining popularity as the flexible packaging option. Moreover, four-sided, fin-sealed pouches are becoming popular for medical, retail food applications, and institutional food service packs. Aluminium-based containers that can be used in the microwave are also being developed on a large scale. Special cooking aluminum foil for barbecuing have been developed in recent years.
Recycling of aluminum foil including cans and foils are also gaining traction. Processes used during manufacturing of aluminum foil are being improved to reduce hazardous waste and pollution. Laminated aluminium foil with paper stuck inside is largely being used in the food industry for packaging sweets and tea as the paper absorbs moisture while the foil protects the contents.
