The new standard for moon cake packaging is difficult to produce
in the Mid Autumn Festival last year, in view of the problems that the packaging cost of the moon cake industry is greater than the production cost, the National Standardization Committee, in the process of material development, required relevant industry organizations to speed up the formulation of the Mid Autumn Festival moon cake packaging standards in accordance with the law of the people's Republic of China on the prevention and control of environmental pollution by solid waste. The news once aroused great concern in the society, but the new standard is still "half covered with the pipa" --
the rise in the price of raw materials promotes the rise in the price of moon cakes
recently, from the "Guangzhou Restaurant 2005 mid Autumn Festival moon cake stuffing and packaging exhibition" will upload news, this year's moon cake raw material prices increased significantly, such as lotus seeds from 21000 yuan/ton last year to 26000 yuan/ton, sugar from 4100 yuan/ton to 4500 yuan/ton, The tinplate used to make packing boxes also increased from 7000 yuan/ton to 9500 yuan/ton. "The rising price of raw materials determines that the price of moon cakes will rise."
insiders said that although the price of moon cake stuffing has not been finally priced, the production and operation costs of manufacturers have increased, and it is expected that the increase of moon cake price will not be less than 10% - 15% of the improvement of testing methods
manufacturers promise not to contain harmful additives
it is reported that this year's moon cake production will still make a big fuss on natural fruits and vegetables, such as the "Lingnan fruit king" stuffing with papaya as raw material, the "healthy pumpkin" stuffing with pumpkin as raw material, the "bayberry" stuffing with bayberry as raw material, and the "salty" moon cakes such as "XO sauce" and "shallot beef" will be more delicious. In terms of production process, the manufacturer strictly monitors the purchase of raw materials, the control of various processes in the production process and factory inspection, and does not contain any additives banned by the state
it is not easy to formulate packaging standards
last year, in view of the fact that the packaging cost of the moon cake industry is greater than the production cost, the National Standardization Commission, in accordance with the law of the people's Republic of China on the prevention and control of environmental pollution by solid waste, required relevant industry organizations to speed up the formulation of packaging standards for Mid Autumn Festival moon cakes, mainly from the problems of carrying other food and gifts, the gap capacity of moon cake packaging, the number of layers Standardize the packaging of mid autumn moon cakes in terms of cost. The news once aroused great concern in the society, but the new standard is still "half covered by the pipa"
Su Zhiming, executive director of China bakery and sugar products industry association and executive director of Guangzhou Tianyu Chuangzhan Packaging Co., Ltd., believes that the moon cake industry has developed to an unprecedented height, and the entire upstream and downstream output value has reached 30billion yuan. Moon cake has gone beyond the meaning of food itself and become a cultural carrier. If it is just a simple food, the simpler the packaging, the better. But moon cake is really a gift, so packaging is very important
"this also involves the problem of Chinese people's face, especially under the current situation of the industry with serious homogenization of moon cakes and low threshold, personalized and exquisite packaging is essential." He told that it was not easy to formulate the new packaging standards. At present, the terms of the above standards are in the stage of soliciting opinions and discussion. How to stipulate the specific standards needs to be further revised. As for when to promulgate and implement them, it has not been determined yet. Even if it is introduced, it will have little impact on the sales of mid autumn moon cakes this year
"sky high priced moon cakes" are snubbed in metropolises
according to the survey, in economically developed Guangdong, Shanghai and other places, "large packaging and sky high priced moon cakes" are basically unpopular, while in less developed regions such as southwest, northwest, central China and Northeast China, it is difficult to sell if the packaging is small. On the surface, it is related to the degree of economic development, and on the deep level, it is related to consumption habits and values
in contrast, the moon cakes in Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and other places have exquisite but not excessive packaging, reasonable price, and relatively healthy industry development, which has a great relationship with the legislative protection and reasonable guidance of the government, with the advantages of high efficiency, energy saving and high cost performance
relevant experts predict that from this year, China's moon cake packaging will develop towards a simple and exquisite product with cultural connotation (2) the characteristic brand personality of nanoparticles
