Plastic Die Cutting and the Food Industry
Plastic is all around us because of its beneficial properties. Plastic has replaced other traditional materials like wood and metal when building cars, space shuttles, and, home appliance. The possibilities available with plastic provide simple answers to manufacturing challenges.
Plastic is frequently used in the foodservice industry. It is used to help package and display food. It is also used to create napkin and condiment dispensers, food trays, and utensils. There are more plastic products found in kitchens and restaurants than just a few listed above.
- Plastic is used in the foodservice industry because it is easy to sanitize and clean. Food safety is paramount for any food manufacturer or distributor. In many cases, food sickness is spread as a result of improperly cleaned equipment. Plastic is also able to resist bacteria.
- Plastic is also used in this industry because of its strength and durability. It does not rust and plastic can be hard to dent. Plastic products can stay looking new more efficiently than most other materials.
