Manufacture of Packaging

QIMA/WQS offers certifications to build brand confidence and maintain the highest levels of safety, quality, and transparency.

The United States packaging industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% between 2020-2025, making it the most critical market in North America. Throughout the years, we have seen a lot of new ideas and concepts have been introduced. Some of the most vital investments have been in technology, creativity, and sustainability.

Making sure the safety of a product goes beyond just the product itself. The packaging of a product plays a vital role as it has direct contact with the product, and it has to make sure any elements do not affect it.

The food industry follows strict government rules to ensure a safe and hygienic food packaging process. The food and beverage industry is developing faster and will drive the food packaging technology and equipment market growth. On the other hand, you have the bakery and confectionary industry, which has a significant influence in packaging technology and equipment due to the importance of regulating temperature, maintaining taste, and focusing on sanitary measures.
