The hottest tomato industry is popular with packag

  • Detail

At present, the export processing volume of tomatoes and their products in China has developed rapidly, and has become the most important producer and exporter of tomato products in the world. At the same time, the rapidly developing ketchup industry has also brought unprecedented good opportunities to the packaging market

in 2006, China processed 4.3 million tons of fresh tomatoes and produced nearly 700000 tons of ketchup. The products mainly include ketchup, peeled tomatoes or fragments, seasoned ketchup, tomato powder, lycopene, etc. According to the report of the world tomato organization, this method of Chinese tomatoes has been approved by the international organization for Standardization ISO (R method a). The export share of sauce jumped from nearly 8% of the world trade volume eight years ago to 30% last year, of which the export volume of Xinjiang has accounted for 1/4 of the total world trade volume. In 2006, the tomato planting area in Xinjiang was nearly one million mu, and the tomato processing volume was nearly 4million tons, accounting for 90% of the national total, making China the third largest producer of the global tomato industry

⑥ there are three kinds of packaging of tomato products based on the compressive strength of base paper cartons, namely glass bottle packaging, aluminum-plastic composite packaging and steel barrel packaging. With the rapid development of the tomato industry, the tomato sauce packaging industry is also exposed, especially the medium and high-end aluminum-plastic composite packaging and steel drum packaging, which are becoming one of the fastest-growing products in the whole packaging industry

ketchup industry is developing rapidly

relevant statistics show that in 2006, there were 66 ketchup production enterprises in China. The main production enterprises include COFCO Xinjiang Tunhe Co., Ltd., Xinjiang Zhongji Industrial Co., Ltd., Inner Mongolia Bayan Zhuoer Fuyuan Industrial Group, Xinjiang Tianye Co., Ltd., Taishun Xinye (Inner Mongolia) Food Co., Ltd., Sinochem Hebei Import and export company, etc. The annual processing capacity of ketchup in China is more than 1million tons, and the annual export volume is more than 600000 tons. China has become the third largest production area and the largest export country after the United States and the European Union, and plays a decisive role in the world ketchup market

among them, the largest tomato product enterprise is COFCO Tunhe, whose tomato sauce output ranks first in China and second in the world. COFCO Tunhe tomato sauce industry has 19 production plants and 27 production lines, with an annual production capacity of 300000 tons of tomato sauce

it is understood that tomato processing in China is mainly distributed in Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia and Gansu. Xinjiang has strong sunlight, large temperature difference between day and night, dry climate and abundant sandy soil. Processed tomatoes are widely planted along the Tianshan Mountains in Northern Xinjiang and Yanqi Basin in southern Xinjiang. Tomato raw materials have the characteristics of good quality, less pests and diseases, high content of solids and red pigments, which are suitable for tomato processing. In 2006, the tomato planting area in Xinjiang reached 800000 mu, becoming the largest area of processing tomato planting in China

Hetao area in Inner Mongolia has the same resource and environmental advantages as Xinjiang in processing tomato planting. Tomatoes produced in some areas have high solid content, which is very suitable for processing. In addition, tomato planting and processing are also available in Zhangye, Gaotai, Gansu and Qiqihar, Heilongjiang

at present, a relatively new variety of plastic materials has been evaluated. The planting area of tomatoes in the world is relatively fixed. Due to the influence of climate and policies, the growth trend of tomato production capacity abroad is not optimistic. On the contrary, thanks to favorable natural conditions, China's tomato production has increased rapidly, and its proportion in the world's total tomato production has also increased year by year. China has become the world's first exporter of tomato paste in large packages

from the perspective of market demand, the European and American markets will have a relatively stable growth, while the consumption of emerging markets, such as Asia, Africa, Russia and other regions will increase significantly. As an emerging tomato sauce consumer market, with the promotion of foreign fast food and Western food, China's consumption will also be greatly improved

the imbalance between supply and demand brings opportunities for the development of China's red industry. With high-quality raw materials and cost advantages, China will benefit more from the price rise caused by the imbalance between supply and demand. At the same time, the extension of the industrial chain will also enable Chinese tomato processing enterprises to obtain higher added value

the packaging industry has benefited from the rapid development of the ketchup industry, which has brought huge business opportunities to the packaging market. According to relevant experts, the packaging of sauce is divided into two categories, namely bags and bottles. Low grade seasoning sauce is mainly packed in plastic bags. Some medium and high-end sauces, such as chili sauce, tomato sauce and various jam, are packaged in glass bottles and equipped with plastic caps, which are convenient to open and close for many times. Some sauces are also added with aluminum-plastic sealing film to extend the shelf life. In addition, in the process of mass transportation and distribution of ketchup, steel drums are also widely used for packaging

however, at present, the process technology and equipment of many packaging enterprises in China are still very backward, and some even remain at the level of the 1960s and 1970s. Although there is still a certain market for these products in China, with the development of the national economy and the improvement of people's living standards, people have higher and higher requirements for packaging quality. If we do not pay close attention to the improvement of the existing production process and improve the level of process equipment, many domestic enterprises will be difficult to participate in market competition and will be eliminated

relevant experts believe that the scientific packaging of ketchup is an inevitable trend. For example, in the field of small packaging, aluminum plastic composite packaging represents the latest trend. These packages are not only beautifully printed, but also can extend the shelf life. The disadvantage is that they do not solve the problem of secondary sealing. If consumers can't eat them all at once after buying, they still need to change the packaging themselves. In addition, plastic bottle packaging is also increasing, so the two prices of guangkou PE are also different, and t bottles have been used. At present, there are few PET bottle production lines introduced in China, mainly because of the small demand. However, with the transition of sauce food to high-end products, PET bottle is expected to become the most important packaging form of this kind of condiments

from the perspective of large packaging, the fully automatic production mode will be the main packaging mode in the future, that is, to achieve the unity of high efficiency, high quality and high coordination in the whole production line. The full-automatic, semi-automatic and manual mixed production line can not give full play to the high efficiency of the full-automatic production line, and the quality can not be guaranteed. The speed and quality of the whole production process are extremely uneven
