Food storage containers are
widespread in use throughout the world and have probably been in use since the
first human developments. A package provides protection, tampering resistance,
and special physical, chemical, or biological needs. Food containers include a
wide array of materials, such as plastic, metals glass and paper that are
processed and formed. Containers are a standard choice for airtight food
storage and they are commonly used for multiple, smaller storage purposes. These
types of containers are ideal for multiple uses though recycled plastic is not
recommended for food processes to avoid the transmission of contaminants. They
are also typically designed to be leak proof. Some of the containers such as
paper containers are suitable for recycling purposes because of their
biodegradable and compostable properties. Glass is also commonly used for
liquid containers, as it is transparent and displays content. Additionally,
glass jars are often a suitable choice for refrigeration purposes and are
suitable for microwave heating.

are environment-friendly, manufacturers are developing containers that are
recyclable and resistant to friction, moisture, and heat. Therefore, Demand for
ecological containers among consumers has increased. Consumers are more

frosted, and colored glasses, they keep the food fresh for longer periods as
