Revolutionizing Freeze-Dried Food Packaging with Sustainable Paper Solutions
Freeze-dried food packaging is popular because they’re convenient and affordable as they remove moisture from food to extend its shelf life without refrigeration or added preservatives.
However, these foods often use non-sustainable packaging materials like plastics or Styrofoam made from harmful petroleum-based plastics.
According to National Geography, 8 million tons end up in landfills and oceans. This harms our environment and costs us money. The industry has realised that we must reduce reliance on these materials and find more sustainable alternatives. For instance, companies like IKEA, Kellogg's and Universal Biopack now use biodegradable materials to replace plastic packaging and single-use containers.
As responsible product manufacturers, we know that the current state of the freeze-dried food packaging industry needs to be more efficient and sustainable to meet growing market demands and protect our environment.
Our Sustainable Packaging Solutions
Rather than using destructive packaging, there is an answer to deliver the same end product quality while protecting our earth. It's time to consider eco-friendly, biodegradable and compostable materials.
Currently, bioplastics are made up of about 1% of the world's 370 million tonnes of plastics. However, the growth rate is expected to rise by about 30% through 2025.
With such statistics, it is clear that sustainable packaging materials are better for the environment and reduce waste. Furthermore, they can reduce costs and benefit the brand's reputation.
Our sustainable packaging solution uses biodegradable and compostable solutions like paper packaging. These materials are sourced responsibly, making them an ideal choice for manufacturers looking for a more sustainable approach.
We design packaging that ensures maximum protection and preservation for freeze-dried foods. They can also be reused or repurposed to reduce waste and conserve resources.

How Does Packaging Influence the Quality of Freeze-Dried Food Products
Freeze-dried food products depend highly on packaging to maintain quality from shelf to mouth.
The most significant factor is the choice of packaging material, which protects food from moisture and oxygen. Furthermore, it must maintain food quality and taste as promised to your customers.
Here is what you should look for when choosing the right packaging to ensure freeze-dried food quality:
- Moisture Barrier - Resistance to moisture so food stays fresh longer.
- Oxygen Barrier - Prevents oxygen from entering packaging and maintains food freshness.
- Light Barrier - Blocks out light and preserves food's nutritional value and taste.
- Physical Protection - Prevents damages and contaminants from contacting the food contents.
- Shelf Life - Ensures food remains safe and edible for a certain period.
- Consumer Convenience - Allows consumers to buy food that can be stored easily and consumed later.
- Environmental Impact - Reduces packaging waste and is environmentally friendly.
In addition to packaging considerations, the product should be easily handled, stored, and transported so it can be delivered efficiently and safely from the manufacturer to your customer.

Sonoco's sustainable packaging accumulates less than traditional plastic packaging in landfills or oceans, reducing the product's environmental impact.
Maintaining food quality and freshness
To preserve the quality and freshness of freeze-dried foods, Sonoco's paper packaging is designed to provide an airtight barrier, protecting the food from oxygen and moisture. Food retains its texture, flavour, and nutritional value despite being stored for extended periods.
