CHAPTER ONE

1.1    INTRODUCTION

Food packaging needs to be taking care extensively. Accordingly to (Brody A.L et al 1997), he said there is a way by which food is packaged properly, food packaging is also an act of preparing food in such a way that is prevented from contaminating the environment and at the same time helping in distribution and marketing.

The packaging of food has undergone a resolution in recent times. Food packaging has its several objectives, without it’s objectives, the packaging of food are as follows; we have the physical protection where the food that is enclosed in the package, may require protection from, among other things, shock , vibration, compression, temperature etc. We have the barrier protection from oxygen, water, vapour, dust etc, is often required

Food packaging is a sealed pack of diced port from tesco, food packaging has it’s various types and containers, such as packaging types of container and food examples. He also went further to said that there are various packaging types, type of container by food should be well packaged also that there is still food examples which is very important too. Robertson G.L (2002).

Packaging                    Primary

Pallets

Tertiary:– A serves of boxes on a single pallet used to transport from the manufacturer Plant  to the distributor care.

Wrapper tertiary:- Used to wrap the boxes on the pallet for transport.

Primary Packaging:- Is simply the act of packaging that holds the food that is being processed.

While

Secondary packaging combines the primary packages into one box that is already made

Tertiary Packaging:- is simply the combination of all the secondary packages into one pallet.

Packaging does not only ensure that foods contains and maintains the amount and forms of the required ingredient and nutrients but also improves the sensory quality and colour stability.

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

It has been demonstrated that food packaging can retard product deterioration, retain the beneficial effects of processing, extend shelf-life and maintain or increase the quality and safety of food . Therefore it is important that food packaging materials should possess proper mechanical, thermal and optical properties for foods. In addition anti-microbial and barrier functions against gases, vapour and aroma are also important in food packaging materials.

The principal roles of packaging are to protect food products from outside influences and damages, to contain the food, and to provide consumers with ingredient and nutritional information. Packaging maintains the benefits of food processing after the process is completed, enabling food to travel safely for long distances from their point of origin and still be wholesome at the time of consumption. It is in view of these that this study was conducted to investigate the effects processing methods and packaging materials on the quality attributes of Suya meat.
