Food and Drug Administration has required partially hydrogenated oils PHOs to be phased out of the food supply, new products with less saturated fat and greater functionality are emerging to take their place, according to Food Business News. Others are all-purpose margarine with a lower calorie count and high-oleic soybean oils, Food Business News reported. The agency gave food makers a deadline of June 18,to remove these substances from their products. The FDA extended that deadline to Jan.
In no particular order, here they are: Because the detergent is much more concentrated than the typical 2x concentrated detergents, less is needed.
To make sure that people don't overdo it when adding detergent to their laundry, Method decided to use a bottle that only lets out a certain amount of liquid with each pump. Having a control like that in place helps people use exactly how much detergent they need to, cutting down on the overdosing that can happen from using the typical small caps with hard-to-read fill lines.
As a bonus, the packaging is completely recyclable, made of commonly-recycled HDPE identified by the resin code 2 and takes up significantly less space than other detergents. Since Method's technology for making its 8x detergent is patent-pending, we might not see similar widespread use of such packaging, but we can always hope.
Packaging that's easier to open, and less packaging altogether. The online retailer has worked with companies to help them reduce materials in packaging, cut out unnecessary plastic and bits like twist ties and swap out graphic-heavy boxes for plain cardboard boxes the former of which is especially unnecessary for items being sold through a virtual storefront.
Frustration-Free Packaging was launched in time for the holiday shopping season in with 19 products, and Amazon.
While a lot of those are items that have traditionally not been lumped in the frustrating category Has it ever been that difficult to ship tea and tissues with minimal packaging? It appears the products were phased out after only being available for a year, which is a shame since the packaging had such great potential for reducing impacts across the supply chain.
Each spray bottle was sold empty, with a small bottle of concentrated cleaner. To fill up the bottle, customers would need to add water, insert the small bottle, twist it so a special bit slits it open, and voila, you have homemade cleaners.
Each spray bottle could be used at least seven times. This innovation alone would lead to massive impacts, and exponentially so if it caught on at other brands. From substantially lighter shipments to huge savings in plastic used and thrown away, simply encouraging a reuse mindset among consumers would be enough to land this innovation on our list.
Clamshell Alternatives The same features that make plastic clamshell packaging a useful theft deterrent also make it highly wasteful: Bulky and hard to open, clamshells are often the focus of customers' ire.
And what's more, clamshells are often made of PVC, a plastic that is not widely recycled.
The basic premise is that the instead of a big plastic shell around a product, there is instead a smaller plastic case that fits snugly around the product, and paperboard is used to hold the plastic shell closed and secure.
HP did it by packing the laptop and accessories in a messenger bag, and shipping multiple bags in large boxes to stores. The laptop-in-a-bag was sold only through Walmart and Sam's Club, and while it was a one-off design, it was truly - pardon the horrible pun - out of the box thinking.
When someone is buying a laptop, they're likely going to want a way to carry it around. This combo provided a two-in-one solution for people who needed to get both at the same time.
In addition to the large reduction in materials, the laptop bags were made with percent recycled fabric and took up less shipping spaced than laptops in typical boxes.Oct 17, · The present invention relates to packaging edible solid fats, and more particularly to a two-piece packaging system comprising an outer casing of container or similar rigid material, defining the overall shape of the package, and an inner sealed bag of a thin, flexible packaging material.
These include sensory evaluation methods and instrumental methods to determine food quality deterioration. The final section of the book covers stability of important ingredient categories, from oils and fats, to beverages such as beer, wine, coffee and fruit juices, in .

The latest development in this sector is the “form-shrink” packaging technology. Products e.g. meat cuts, chicken carcasses, entire sausages, smaller portions of meat products, are placed between two shrinkable films, which are moulded without wrinkles around the goods.
Sealing seams can be kept extremely small.
