Food plastic wraps are commonly known as cling films or wraps. Cling film is a thin plastic wrap that is used for sealing and securing food items and different products in healthcare, pharmaceuticals, consumer goods, and other industries. When used in the packaging of products in the food industry, cling films enable them to keep the food items fresh for a longer duration of time. The manufacturing of cling films involves blowing compressed air through a tube to form a bubble. The bubble then stretches the plastic into the required or desired thickness. Finally, the bubble is collapsed between metal rollers to give rise to a cling film. Cling films are used for sealing the food items or other products that are packed. They protect the food items from bacteria, microorganisms, moisture, and dust from external sources.
The most vital role played by any cling film in packaged or ready to eat food is protection and preservation. Cling films are permeable to water vapor and oxygen, which leads to the extension and increased freshness of the packaged ready to eat food items. The smooth surface of cling films adjusts themselves and remain tightly fixed over the opening of the container of packaged food without the use of any adhesives. Cling films also help in keeping the ready to eat food or packaged food articles moist inside the refrigerator and not lead to the loss of flavor or taste. Besides this, cling films also help in reducing wastage of ready to eat foods, tag information related to food, ease the logistics & distribution process and enhance the microwave ability and visibility of the packaged and ready to eat food items. Owing to all the above-stated reasons, the manufacturers, leading restaurants and food & beverage stores have identified the use of cling films for the ready to eat and packaged food items. Thus, an upsurge in demand for ready to ear and packaged foods is expected to bolster well the demand for cling films.
