A sealed pack of diced pork from Tesco. It shows the cooking time, number of servings, 'display until' date, 'use by' date, weight in kg, price, price to weight ratio in both ?/kg and ?/lb, freezing and storage instructions. It says 'Less than 3% Fat' and 'No Carbs per serving' and includes a barcode. The Union Flag, British Farm Standard tractor logo, and British Meat Quality Standard logo imply that it is British pork.

Packaging is the science, art, and technology of enclosing or protecting products for distribution, storage, sale, and use. Packaging also refers to the process of design, evaluation, and production of packaging. Packaging labelling (BrE) or labeling (AmE) is any written, electronic, or graphic communications on the packaging or on a separate but associated label.
Packaging is heavily integrated into our daily lives, we see it all around us, on everyday items such as chocolate bars and potato chip (crisp) packets- As explained below, the main use for packaging is protection of the goods inside, but packaging also provides us with a recognisable logo, or packaging, we instantly know what the goods are inside
The purposes of packaging and packaging labels
Packaging and packaging labelling have several objectives:
• Physical Protection - The objects enclosed in the packaging may require protection from, among other things, shock, vibration, compression, temperature, etc.
• Barrier Protection - A barrier from oxygen, water vapor, dust, etc., is often required. Packaging permeability is a critical factor in design. Some packaging contain desiccants or Oxygen absorbers to help extend shelf life. Modified atmospheres or controlled atmospheres are also maintained in some food packaging. Keeping the contents clean, fresh, and safe for the intended shelf life is a primary function.
• Containment or Agglomeration - Small objects are typically grouped together in one packaging for reasons of efficiency. For example, a single box of 1000 pencils requires less physical handling than 1000 single pencils. Liquids, powders, and flowables need containment.
• Information transmission - Information on how to use, transport, recycle, or dispose of the packaging or product is often contained on the packaging or label. With pharmaceutical, food, medical, and chemical products, some types of information are required by governments.
• Marketing - The packaging and labels can be used by marketers to encourage potential buyers to purchase the product. Packaging design has been an important and constantly evolving phenomenon for dozens of years. Marketing communications and graphic design are applied to the surface of the packaging and (in many cases) the point of sale display.
• Security - Packaging can play an important role in reducing the security risks of shipment. Packaging can be made with improved tamper resistance to deter tampering and also can have tamper-evident features to help indicate tampering. Packaging can be engineered to help reduce the risks of packaging pilferage: Some packaging constructions are more resistant to pilferage and some have pilfer indicating seals. Packaging may include authentication seals to help indicate that the packaging and contents are not counterfeit. Packaging also can include anti-theft devices, such as dye-packs, RFID tags, or electronic article surveillance tags, that can be activated or detected by devices at exit points and require specialized tools to deactivate. Using packaging in this way is a means of loss prevention.
• Convenience - Packaging can have features which add convenience in distribution, handling, display, sale, opening, reclosing, use, and reuse.
• Portion Control - Single serving or single dosage packaging has a precise amount of contents to control usage. Bulk commodities (such as salt) can be divided into packaging that are a more suitable size for individual households. It is also aids the control of inventory: selling sealed one-liter-bottles of milk, rather than having people bring their own bottles to fill themselves.
Packaging types

Various household packaging types for foods
Packaging may be looked at as several different types. For example a transport packaging or distribution packaging is the packaging form used to ship, store, and handle the product or inner packaging. Some identify a consumer packaging as one which is directed toward a consumer or household.
It is sometimes convenient to categorize packaging by layer or function: "primary", "secondary", etc.
• Primary packaging is the material that first envelops the product and holds it. This usually is the smallest unit of distribution or use and is the packaging which is in direct contact with the contents.
• Secondary packaging is outside the primary packaging – perhaps used to group primary packaging together.
• Tertiary packaging is used for bulk handling and shipping.
Using these three types as a general guide, examples of packaging materials and structures might typically be listed as follows:
Primary packaging
• Aerosol spray can
• Bags-In-Boxes
• Wine box
• Bottles
• Blister packs
• Cans
• Cushioning
• Envelopes
• Plastic bags
• Plastic bottles
• Skin pack
• Wrappers
Secondary packaging
• Boxes
• Cartons
• Shrink wrap
edge protector solidboard/ fiberboard sheets
Tertiary packaging
• Bales
• Barrel
• Crate
• Container
• Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container, Big bag, "Bulk Bags", or "Super Sacks"
• Intermediate bulk container
• Pallets
• Slip Sheet
• Stretch wrap
Symbols used on packaging and labels
Many types of symbols for packaging labelling are nationally and internationally standardized. For consumer packaging, symbols exist for product certifications, trademarks, proof of purchase, etc. Some requirements and symbols exist to communicate aspects of consumer use and safety. Recycling directions, Resin identification code (below), and packaging environmental claims have special codes and symbols.

Bar codes (below), Universal Product Codes, and RFID labels are common to allow automated information management.
Shipments of hazardous materials or dangerous goods have special information and symbols as required by UN, country, and specific carrier requirements. Two examples are below:

With transport packaging, standardised symbols are also used to aid in handling. Some common ones are shown below while others are listed in ASTM D5445 "Standard Practice for Pictorial Markings for Handling of Goods" and ISO 780 "Pictorial marking for handling of goods".
Packaging Development Considerations
Packaging design and development are often thought of as an integral part of the new product development process. Alternatively, development of a packaging (or component) can be a separate process, but must be linked closely with the product to be packagingd. Packaging design starts with the identification of all the requirements: structural design, marketing, shelf life, quality assurance, logistics, legal, regulatory, graphic design, end-use, environmental, etc. The design criteria, time targets, resources, and cost constraints need to be established and agreed upon.

Transport packaging needs to be matched to its logistics system. Packaging designed for controlled shipments of uniform pallet loads may not be suited to mixed shipments with express carriers.
An example of how packaging design is affected by other factors is the relationship to logistics. When the distribution system includes individual shipments by a small parcel carrier, the sortation, handling, and mixed stacking make severe demands on the strength and protective ability of the transport packaging. If the logistics system is for uniform pallet loads that are unitized, the structural design of the packaging can be designed to those specific needs: vertical stacking, perhaps for a longer time frame. A packaging designed for one mode of shipment may not be suited for another.
Sometimes the objectives of packaging development seem contradictory. For example, packaging for an over-the-counter drug might require tamper resistance and child resistant features: These intentionally make the packaging difficult to open. The intended consumer, however, might be handicapped or elderly and be unable to readily open the packaging.
Packaging design may take place within a company or with various degrees of external packaging engineering: contract engineers, consultants, vendor evaluations, independent laboratories, contract packagingrs, total outsourcing, etc. Some sort of formal Project planning and Project Management methodology is required for all but the simplest packaging design and development programs.
Sustainability involves responsible use of energy and resources. The packaging development process may involve a life cycle assessment which considers the material and energy inputs and outputs to the packaging, the packagingd product (contents), the packaging process, the logistics system, waste management, etc. It is necessary to know the relevant regulatory requirements
The traditional “three R’s” of reduce, reuse, and recycle have been expanded. All levels of the waste hierarchy may be considered in product and packaging development.

The waste hierarchy
• Prevention – Waste prevention is a primary goal. Packaging should be used only where needed. Proper packaging can also help prevent waste. Packaging plays an important part in preventing loss or damage to the packagingd-product (contents). Usually, the energy content and material usage of the product being packagingd are much greater than that of the packaging. A vital function of the packaging is to protect the product for its intended use: if the product is damaged or degraded, its entire energy and material content may be lost.
• Minimization – (also ‘’source reduction’’) The mass and volume of packaging (per unit of contents) can be measured and used as one of the criteria to minimize during the packaging design process. Usually “reduced” packaging also helps minimize costs.
• Reuse – The reuse of a packaging or component for other purposes is encouraged. Returnable packaging has long been useful (and economically viable) for closed loop logistics systems. Inspection, cleaning, repair and recouperage are often needed.
• Recycling – Recycling is the reprocessing of materials (pre- and post-consumer) into new products. Emphasis is focused on recycling the largest primary components of a packaging: steel, aluminum, papers, plastics, etc. Small components can be chosen which are not difficult to separate and do not contaminate recycling operations.
• Energy recovery – Waste-to-energy and Refuse-derived fuel in approved facilities are able to make use of the heat available from the packaging components.
• Disposal – Incineration, and placement in a sanitary landfill are needed for some materials. Material content should be checked for potential hazards to emissions and ash from incineration and leachate from landfill. Packaging should not be littered.
Packaging machines
A choice of packaging machinery includes, technical capabilities, labor requirements, worker safety, maintainability, serviceability, reliability, ability to integrate into the packaging line, capital cost, floorspace, flexibility (change-over, materials, etc.), energy usage, quality of outgoing packaging, qualifications (for food, pharmaceuticals, etc.), throughput, efficiency, productivity, ergonomics, etc.
