Date packaging containers

In countries where date consumption is on the rise, they encourage storing them in container boxes. These container boxes must meet certain criteria and be able to preserve the dates’ quality and freshness. Three of the most important qualities that date packaging containers must meet are discussed below:

1- Blocking the flow of air and having the best possible strength: Dates are among fruits that are vulnerable to humidity and can become unusable upon exposure to humidity. For long-distance deliveries and export transportations, a packaging must be selected that preserves your date in the best possible way.

2- Reasonable price: Trading dates is an expensive and difficult business on its own; it is best to use packaging containers with the best quality and the lowest price. The Sadaf Pack Company uses the best raw materials and equipment to provide you with date packaging containers of the best quality and most appropriate price.

3- The weight of packaging for export dates: The costs of exporting products are extremely high; light packaging containers must be used to facilitate the transportation.

Different types of date packaging containers

As said earlier, packaging containers are the best way to transport and preserve the dates. In this section we want to introduce you to three of the most widely used containers and methods for packaging dates, so you can choose your favorite:

1) Poly-Crystal date packaging Container

The raw material for these date packaging containers is oil; hence, production of plastic containers mostly happens in countries where oil is more widely used and traded. The newest plastic containers are strong enough to endure accidental falls from short heights and still be usable after the fall. Light and heat can affect the plastic containers in the long-run; the date container might lose its clarity and previous glow, but snow and cold have no effect on the packaging and will not damage it. The price of plastic containers for exporting dates is much more reasonable than other options. Dates usually secrete a syrup after a while of being in a container; plastic containers, unlike cardboard containers, are more resistant to this syrup and the packaged dates will face no problems. The variety of plastic containers is delivered to you safely in special boxes with foam. Here we will introduce you to some specific models of plastic containers that are suitable for date packaging.

2) Metal date packaging Container

dates packaging in the traditional style appeals to the customers. This style of date preservation is popular is the Gulf countries and East Asian countries. Metal containers are the most resistant to thermal changes, falls, or hits, and they preserve your dates well. What differentiates metal containers from other forms of date packaging is the wide variety of designs that can be printed on the containers. You can print your own design on the metal date containers in five simultaneous colors and offer it to your customers. Metal containers are usually used for exporting dates due to their higher resistance compared to plastic containers; they assure you that the dates will be preserved. Here we will introduce you to some of Sadaf Pack’s appropriate metal packaging containers for dates.

a) The rectangular 14*19 metal container (3 cm height):

The 14*19 metal containers with 3 and 4 cm heights are among the suitable containers for storage of dates. These metal containers are very elegant and have beautiful designs printed on them, which induces a positive feeling in the customer.

3) What is the cheapest way of date packaging?

Among other packaging methods that can be used are craft packets, stand-up pouches, and other laminated packets of Sadaf Pack. Of course, using these packets is mostly appropriate for dried dates since fresh dates have an oily and sticky sense to them and will stick to the packet’s sides. We suggest using this method for domestic sales.
