Challenges of Namkeen Packaging

We Indians love to snack, so the market is booming. Whether it is a famous Indian brand like Haldiram and Bikanervala, MNC like Pepsi or a small, local mithaiwala, they all seem to have a market for their products – and enjoy tasty profits.

However, snack food manufacturers have a few basic challenges when packaging their products:

1. Fragility of product
Snack foods tends to be fragile with light density. They also tend to be of irregular shape and size. This makes it difficult to package the products quickly without damage.

2. Freshness of product
Freshness and crispiness are crucial for sale of snacks. Chips that have gone soft or fried namkeen that smells rancid are sure to damage the maker’s reputation and market.

3. Range of products
Most snack manufacturers produce a variety of snacks, and it is not always possible to invest in, for example, a namkeen packaging machine and a potato chips packaging machine. Especially for smaller enterprises, such capital expenditure is not feasible.
