ULMA Packaging is providing services to its customers in essential sectors, such as the food and medical/pharmaceutical industries

Today, in the midst of an unprecedented global health crisis, it is more important than ever for the goods and products that we use to be properly packaged. In the case of items from sectors more prone to contamination, such as the food industry - both fresh products and perishable goods - or medical/healthcare and pharmaceutical supplies, including items such as surgical masks, dressings and also many medicines, it is even more important for them to reach consumers properly packaged. For this entire industry to continue to operate with the maximum guarantee and level of safety, a proper packing and packaging process is necessary, which is why ULMA Packaging must continue providing services and solutions to its customers in those sectors, no longer for business reasons, but out of a sense of responsibility and commitment to society.

A proper packaging process provides numerous benefits in the current situation. On the one hand, packaging for food products helps to guarantee not just the safety and good condition of the food for the consumer, but also the hygiene and traceability of such items, meaning that the producer and seller of the food can be identified at all times. This aspect is vital during the health crisis we are currently experiencing, where the packaging used by producers must offer customers peace of mind that the food is free of contamination, and is compliant with all of the regulations that apply to the food industry.

In terms of sustainability, studies show 25% of food is wasted, contributing to 10% of all greenhouse gases. Proper packaging directly reduces environmental impact by extending shelf life and minimising waste, which helps to protect the planet. Furthermore, food packaging regulations are among the strictest in the sector, resulting in greater safety for the end consumer.

Another key sector in which product packaging is particularly important is the medical/pharmaceutical industry. It is vital to offer sector professionals and end consumers a properly protected product, with all the necessary hygiene and quality guarantees, so products can be transported safely and sold anywhere in the world. Dressings, surgical masks and medicines are delivered to users in compliance with the regulations and with all the necessary guarantees. Even the tests for detecting COVID-19 are sold packaged so that they can be used safely.

Today, more than ever, packaging has the essential and strategic function of protecting the product. And in this context, ULMA Packaging continues to serve its customers and provide services all over the world to those operating in essential sectors. ULMA Packaging will continue to provide its after-sales service, developing packing and packaging solutions adapted to each customer and their needs, with the ultimate aim of protecting people's health. We are all in this together.
