Shanghai Quality and Technology Supervision Bureau recently announced the results of a random inspection of product packaging. Health care products have become a â€œhit areaâ€ for over-packaging of goods. Waste of resources, environmental pollution, over-packaging have been criticized in recent years, and partially over-packaged goods. For example, packaging costs more than 20% of the price of goods. Consumers, manufacturers, resources, the environment... Who in the end should pay for â€œover-packagingâ€?
Excessive packaging is not a new term, festivals, accompanied by a variety of gift sales are often mentioned, such as the over-packing of moon cakes during the Mid-Autumn Festival, over-packing of the Dragon Boat Festival dumplings and so on. The reason why health care products have become overly-packed as the "hard-hit areas," industry insiders frankly stated: "The many customers who buy health care products are for gift-giving purposes. Only over-packaging can call their minds, and there are face-savings when they send them."
Should not exceed 20% of the selling price of the product
It is understood that in 2009, the AQSIQ and the National Standards Commission approved the issuance of the â€œExcessive Packaging Requirements for Commodities,â€ and formulated national standards for the packaging of six categories of products such as health products, beverages, wine, cosmetics, etc. to ensure packaging. The design is scientific, reasonable, effective use of resources, reducing the amount of packaging materials.
According to national standards, to determine whether there is excessive packaging or not, there are mainly three indicators: the number of packaging layers, void ratio, and cost ratio. The limited number of packaging layers for health foods, cosmetics, beverages, and cakes is all three layers, and the maximum packaging voidage is between 50% and 60%. In terms of cost ratios to national standards, the total cost of all packaging, except for the initial packaging, should not exceed 20% of the sales price of the goods.
