Why Customers Love Anti Mist/Anti Fog Film for Packaging

Fogging is a curse of the food packaging industry. The industry experts have opined that close to 50% of the packaged food meant for the human consumption is spoiled even before consumption. The reason is when fog forms on the food – vegetables and fruits, the items tend to spoil. This is a loss for the manufactures as it hinders sales. Thanks to the improvement and research in the food packaging techniques, there are ways to keep the products fresh, tasty and safe to eat. Effective packaging plays a vital role in keeping the food safe by delaying the onset of the fogging.

What is Fog?

The water droplets that form when water vapor condenses is known as fog. In packaging, this occurs when the temperature of the surface of the plastic material falls below a certain temperature.

The fog that you see inside a plastic packaging is because the water vapor has condensed on the surface of the food or the product. When food package is in a plastic packaging, the food stored in the packaging may have the high moisture content. When this is stored in a cold environment, water condenses leading to surface fogging. This can reduce the shelf life of the product as well as the quality.
