It is undeniable that the cost of this environmentally friendly packaging is still relatively high at present, but this is a new packaging "slim down" attempt, which meets the policy requirements of "light packaging". Under the strict supervision of the market, more green and safe packaging materials will become what the market needs.
Dragon Boat Festival is one of the traditional festivals in my country, and Zongzi is an indispensable food in the festival diet. As early as a month ago, many zongzi manufacturers have begun to gear up and put their minds to the production of zongzi. At present, the zongzi on the market not only have unique and diverse tastes, but also do the dazzling product packaging make you dazzled?

Nowadays, the consumption of rice dumplings has maintained a relatively stable development momentum. According to the analysis of data from Zhiyan Consulting and other institutions, the market size of the domestic zongzi industry is about 9 billion yuan, of which the market size of fresh zongzi accounts for about 20%; the market size of quick-frozen and vacuum zongzi accounts for about 80%.

In recent years, the traditional zongzi processing industry has radiated new vitality, gradually moving towards high-level semi-automation and automation, and the industrial development has shown an unusual appearance. For example, the packaging of zongzi is developing from fresh-sale zongzi, simple gifts and aesthetic outer packaging that were sold locally in the past to vacuum-packed zongzi and quick-frozen zongzi, and high-barrier packaging materials more popular in the market. For consumers, safe and simple green packaging is also more in line with the concept of sustainable development.

According to the production process, storage and transportation, and medium and long shelf life requirements of zongzi, the standards for vacuum-packed zongzi to require high-barrier packaging materials are: excellent oxygen permeability, moisture permeability index, and resistance to high temperature cooking at 120 °C, etc. 7-layer or 9-layer co-extrusion packaging materials can be selected for vacuum-packed rice dumplings with a long shelf life. For rice dumplings with a shorter shelf life, 2-layer or 3-layer middle-barrier composite packaging can be used. This type of packaging is made of polypropylene, nylon, and polyester through adhesive.

In order to promote the high-quality development of the rice dumpling industry, the State Administration for Market Regulation (Standard Committee) has recently approved the release of the National Standard No. 1 Amendment Sheet GB 23350-2021 "Restriction of Excessive Packaging Requirements for Food and Cosmetics", which will be implemented on August 15 . It is understood that the specific content of the revision order released this time includes four items: reducing the number of packaging layers, compressing packaging gaps, compressing packaging gaps, and strict mixing requirements.

It is worth mentioning that, at the moment when the simple style of packaging is popular, the packaging of pulp-molded rice dumplings has also played a new trick . It is reported that the packaging of "Midsummer Garden" is mainly composed of a 100% degradable pulp molding box, a paper envelope and a DIY sachet making material set. After enjoying the perfect taste of rice dumplings, consumers can fill the pulp molding (plant fiber molding) box with soil for planting. Minimize the consumption of raw materials and pollution caused by excessive packaging, resulting in microplastic waste that pollutes the environment.

It is undeniable that the cost of this environmentally friendly packaging is still relatively high at present, but this is a new packaging "slim down" attempt, in line with the policy requirements of "light packaging". Under the strict supervision of the market, more green and safe packaging materials will become what the market needs.

The Dragon Boat Festival is approaching. Tips for consuming zongzi:

At present, the weather is getting hot and humid, and the humidity in the south is higher. Zongzi is rich in nutrients, high in water content, easy to rancid, and pathogenic bacteria such as mold are very easy to grow and reproduce. I would like to remind everyone: choose regular channels to buy zongzi products with clear signs; buy fresh zongzi in small quantities each time, and eat it immediately, and the remaining zongzi should be refrigerated or frozen in time. If it is homemade dumplings, pay attention to eat with the package, the brown fragrance will be more intense!
