Why will the demand for aluminum foil food containers increase so much in 2022?
Since 2020, the COVID-19 epidemic is still raging, and no country in the world has been able to eliminate the virus, and China is no exception. Tens of thousands of prevention and control personnel have invested in this battle without gunpowder smoke.
The transmission route of COVID-19 is the respiratory tract and close contact transmission. Therefore, the virus protection in food safety, packaging, meal production, and distribution in the epidemic area and the disposal of food waste in the epidemic area are particularly important and are directly related to epidemic prevention and control—the key to controlling the battle.
At the same time, in non-epidemic areas, takeaway delivery, food production, and dining in unit canteens also involve virus protection during the epidemic.
In China, traditional food packaging is a disposable lunch box or package made of plastic. However, the use of plastic disposable products not only has problems such as poor quality and environmental protection, but also has problems such as poor thermal insulation and preservation capabilities during logistics and distribution, and leftovers cannot be heated repeatedly.
Now, with the successive advent of aluminum foil products, aluminum foil packaging and lunch boxes have gradually replaced traditional plastic products, especially during this epidemic, which played an important role.
China, to prevent and control the spread of the epidemic, China has adopted regional isolation measures to control the spread of the epidemic. It is precisely because of this that people use takeout as a good food purchase channel (especially young people, who prefer to get their dinner directly through takeout). This has also led to the use of a large number of Aluminium Foil Food Containers.
Advantages of Aluminum Foil Food Containers During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Aluminum Foil Food Containers are non-toxic, harmless, safe, and hygienic. Aluminum foil is made of primary aluminum after alloying and rolling through multiple processes, and it does not contain harmful substances such as heavy metals. Aluminum Foil Food Containers and containers are safe to come in contact with food and will not hold or encourage bacterial growth. In most cases, aluminum foil will not react with food, especially aluminum foil with food-grade coatings and films, and will not come into direct contact with food.
Aluminum foil has the advantages of good airtightness and strong isolation. For the current daily food packaging, takeaway, as well as the distribution and transfer of food in the epidemic area, the aluminum foil lunch box has the characteristics of good airtightness and strong isolation, which avoids problems such as spillage during the distribution process.

Aluminum foil lunch boxes have the advantages of energy saving and environmental protection, and easy recycling. Due to the high recycling rate of aluminum foil lunch boxes, almost 100% of them can be recycled and reprocessed after use.
At the same time, aluminum foil products have strong ductility. During the recycling process, they can be compacted arbitrarily, occupying a small space, especially in epidemic areas, which can effectively reduce the cost of disinfection and transportation of garbage.
At the same time, aluminum foil lunch boxes also have many advantages such as high-end and beautiful appearance. In recent years, in addition to aviation aluminum foil lunch boxes and large-scale conference catering, various aluminum foil products have also entered the daily life of residents, gradually replacing traditional packaging products such as plastics.
