Industry Certificate in Food Packaging Programmes


Packaging is pervasive and essential and plays a significant role in the quality of food products by providing protection from environmental, chemical, and physical challenges.This protection can be as simple as preventing breakage of the product to providing barriers to moisture, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and other gases as well as flavors and aromas. However, Packaging technology must balance food protection with other issues, including energy and material costs, heightened social and environmental consciousness, and strict regulations on pollutants and disposal of municipal solid waste.

The goal of food packaging must be to contain food in a cost-effective way that satisfies industry requirements and consumer desires, maintains food safety, and minimizes environmental impact.The role of packaging must be recognized owing to its multiple functions and to its importance in terms of increasing product shelf life by retarding product quality degradation and ensuring its safety.

Thus, we at FFSQ are offering this course to impart the knowledge on application of fundamentals of engineering in packaging design for developing optimal packaging systems for range of products in food systems.
