Most of the traditional products are susceptible to deterioration due to change in moisture or oxygen level. The loss can be minimized to a great extent by adequate protective packaging to withstand the hazards of storage, transportation handling and environmental influences. Though the investment on packaging line is capital intensive, lower raw materials cost, higher production capacity, savings on labour and utility, improvement on product quality and shelf life through mechanisation could justify investment on packaging system along with mechanized production line.
