Aluminium Foil

The combination of barrier properties, thermal insulation, and durability makes alu foil an essential material in modern food packaging, helping to preserve the quality, freshness, and safety of a wide range of food products.

Barrier Properties

Alu foil provides an excellent barrier against oxygen, light, moisture, and other environmental factors that degrade food quality and shelf life.

This makes alu foil an effective material for protecting sensitive food products like fats, oils, and dry foods.

Thermal Insulation

Alu foil has low thermal conductivity, which allows it to insulate and retain the temperature of the packaged food, whether hot or cold.

This property is valuable for packaging of temperature-sensitive foods, frozen items, and ready-to-eat meals.


The shiny surface of alu foil reflects light and heat, further enhancing its insulating properties.

This can be useful for maintaining the temperature of the packaged food during storage and transportation.


Alu foil is highly malleable and can be easily shaped, folded, or crimped to fit various packaging configurations.

This allows for the creation of complex and customized packaging designs to suit different food products.


Alu foil is resistant to punctures, tears, and abrasions, providing strong protection for the packaged food.

This makes it suitable for applications where the package needs to withstand physical stresses during handling and distribution.

Common food packaging applications of alu foil

  • Wrapping and sealing for cheese, butter, and other dairy products

  • Lids and lidding for yoghurt, pudding, and other dairy-based desserts

  • Packaging for dry foods like coffee, tea, and spices

  • Pouches and containers for frozen foods and ready-to-eat meals

  • Lining for cartons, cans, and other rigid food packaging
