Product Security: Maximizing Shelf Life & Tamper-Evident Packaging

Packaging Materials | The Business of Packaging

Last week we blogged about Product Security through the supply chain, including Damage Protection, Traceability, and Loss Prevention. This week we will continue with Shelf Life, and Tamper Evident Packaging.shelf_life_and_temper_evident_packaging.png



There are many flexible film solutions to extend shelf life. These include film selections from lidding, to metalized polyester to modified atmospheric packaging.  Extending the Shelf Life of your products has tremendous benefits for the consumers, the retailers, and you. If your product is sold by weight, such as produce, and the MVT (Moisture Vapor Transmission) of your packaging reduces the weight of your product, it also reduces its revenue. Use a shrink film with a low Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR) to maintain the moisture, weight, and revenue of your product. 


If your packaging cannot prevent unauthorized entry, Tamper-Evident Packaging can make it obvious when the security has been breached. Solutions for tamper evidence include printed shrink film, printed shrink bands, sealing tape (that leaves its mark when removed), etc.


We have plenty of options and experience with keeping your products safe throughout the journey through the supply chain. Talk to one of our Packaging Professionals today.
