While food processing still has the main objective of providing a safe nutritious diet in order to maintain health, other aspects, particularly the generation of wealth for the producer and seller, have become increasingly important. While in developed countries food processing is almost totally carried out in large, automated factories, small-scale food processing still remains a vitally important economic activity in the developing world.

This publication on packaging materials for food products offers an inventory of packaging materials and cost-effective methods that can be applied on a small scale in developing countries. The information is primarily aimed at entrepreneurs in small-scale food-processing industries in developing countries and employees of development organizations supporting these entrepreneurs.
