Packaging Materials Sonoco Used for Food Packaging (Paper and Cardboard)
In recent decades, food packaging has become an essential element in food purchases. Selecting suitable materials for food packaging is crucial. The right food packaging material will determine if the food is packed with ease of transporting and storage and or will the flavor and freshness of the products be preserved.
From the perspective of brands and businesses, suitable food packaging plays an important role as it preserves the products and allows the brand to stand out among the shelves with an excellent appearance. As we strive towards sustainability at Sonoco, our food packaging is made with biodegradable materials like paper and cardboard.
Paper and cardboard are mainly used for packaging dry foods like chips, ready-to-eat popcorn or products like granola and nuts. These materials are also typically used in corrugated boxes, milk cartons, folding cartons, paper plates and cups, bags and sacks, and wrapping paper.
Serving as one of the best food packaging suppliers in Malaysia, Sonoco is moving towards its sustainability commitments by paying particular attention to the environment. In fact, our paper cans are made from 100% recycled fibre and 85% post-consumer recycled content.

How To Choose Safe Food Packaging
There are various types of packaging to choose from, but the best kind of packaging is the one that goes well with your products. Remember, not all food packaging are the same, each comes with its own benefits and downsides to consider from.
When determining the right food packaging for your products, there are three things to ponder upon:
- The packaging should keep your specific food product safe and fresh
- It should be eye-catching to consumers
- The packaging is environmentally-friendly to reduce carbon footprint
After all, they vary by specific properties, which are determined by:
- The type of food being packaged
- Environmental conditions
- Ease of use and disposal
- Cost related factors
In other words, every food packaging material has its traits. Some specific foods are likely to fit in better with a certain packaging type.
