In recent years, exquisitely packaged food has become a representative of high-end products. Various brands have implemented multi-layer packaging boxes for food, which actually caused a waste of resources. This has pointed the food industry to "over packaging". A few days ago, the General Administration of Market Supervision issued the newly revised "Restrictions on Excessive Packaging of Commodities, Food and Cosmetics" mandatory standards, which will be implemented on September 1, 2023, which will also have an important impact on food and other industries.
Many foods, cosmetics, have been packaged by protective boxes and bags, also a large number of cushioning materials such as bubble. Although the protective funtion is available, it is also doubtful. The costs after excessive packaging require consumers to pay, and even lead to environmental pollution, waste of resources, and disrupt economic market order.
The new standard mainly modifies and supplements terms such as contents, packaging layers, packaging void ratio, excessive packaging, commodity necessary space factor, comprehensive commodity term definitions, etc., and modifies the packaging void ratio limit requirements and calculation methods. Effectively solve the problem of evading supervision by increasing the initial packaging volume and adding other products. The standard also adds content such as external packaging volume detection, determination rules, and necessary space coefficients for different products.
The standard sets a two-year transition period for enterprises and the market. For product companies, although "excessive packaging" is an important publicity outlet for brand culture, it needs to be changed under the overall development of green and sustainable thinking. Meanwhile, instead of gaining attention with "over-packaging", companies may be more concerned with product production itself.
