Primary packaging

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Primary packaging (including primary packaging ) are packaging materials such as foils, jars, cans, lids, etc. that come into direct contact with the product. Such packaging can be made from a wide variety of materials, for example from polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, aluminum, glass or porcelain, and occasionally also from earthenware. Outer packaging that is not in direct contact with the food or pharmaceuticals is secondary packaging and is not considered here, i.e. it does not count as primary packaging.

There are many standards that define the requirements for manufacturers of such packaging materials and are recognized worldwide, including, for example, ISO 22000 , BRCGS , FSSC 22000 , International Featured Standard and others.
