Food packaging is an essential part of the food processing industry and is partly responsible for the safety and quality of manufactured foods. Without good packaging, foods would spoil quicker as exposure to air and other environmental factors like bacteria would reduce the shelf life of some processed foods. Many food processors and manufacturers use automated systems in their production facilities to package the finished food products, however, there are many employment opportunities for workers in this field.
