Global Insulated Packaging Market: Overview
Insulation materials resist the heat transfer from one object to another with two different temperatures having low thermal conductivity. Thermal fluctuations commonly occur during transportation of temperature-sensitive products. This is the main reason behind many companies majorly using insulated materials for packaging. Insulated packaging provides better protection from damage, maintaining the product specifications. It keeps product warm, refrigerated, frozen and reduces the effect of variable temperature. For example, packaging design specialist, Angela Morris—through National Trust’s ‘Farming Forward’ scheme—realized the importance of wool as an ideal insulation material which can protect ice-cold foodstuffs during transportation. This ‘Farming Forward’ scheme was aimed to assist its farmers in rebuilding their business after foot and mouth outbreak in 2001. Morris worked for another 6 years in testing, refining, and developing the Woolcool.
