Tamper-Evident Packaging: Maximizing Product Security And Shelf Life

Packaging Materials | The Business of Packaging

Are you looking to improve your product's security and shelf life? If you answered yes, tamper-evident packaging might be suitable for you.


In an ever more dangerous world, product security and protection are more important than ever. With counterfeiting of products on the rise the world over, these items are of extreme importance.


In addition to ensuring that your products are safe and protected, the need for longer shelf life has also arisen. Fortunately, tamper-evident packaging can help to improve all three of these dynamics for your products.


But how can tamper-evident packaging improve your product's safety, security, and shelf life? What are the benefits of using tamper-evident packaging for your business?


And, most importantly, is tamper-evident packaging right for you?


This article will explore how tamper-evident packaging can improve your products' safety, security, and shelf life and why you may want to consider implementing it on your packaging line.




Tamper-Evident Packaging For Improving Shelf Life


Many tamper-evident packaging supplies, such as flexible films, extend shelf life. These include film selections from lidding films to metalized polyester to modified atmosphere packaging. 


Extending the shelf life of your products has tremendous benefits for the consumers, the retailers, and you. For example, 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.


To remedy this, consider using a shrink film with a low Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR) to maintain your product's moisture, weight, and revenue.


While improved shelf life is an excellent attribute of tamper-evident packaging, there are many other benefits of using tamper-evident packaging for your products.
