Historically, humans secured food through two methods: hunting and agriculture. Today, the majority of the food energy required by the ever increasing population of the world is supplied by the food industry. In this Industry food processing and packaging play an important role.

There are three types of packaging, primary, secondary and tertiary. Primary packaging is the main package that holds the food that is being processed. Secondary packaging combines the primary packages into a single box. Tertiary packaging combines allthe secondary packages into one pallet.

The FSSAI (Food Safety and Standards Authority of India) in order to safe guard the interest of the consumer, states that every packaged food article has to be labelled and it should provide the following information

  • Code No/Lot No./Batch No.,
  • Date of manufacture or packing,
  • Best Before and Use by Date,

The packaged food for export has to be coded in accordance to the food laws and regulations applicable to the importing country.
