The evolution of packaging
The history of packaging is one of the oldest stories of humanity, because since the dawn of time, man has had the need to contain, transport and protect his goods.
Packaging and labeling have been used since ancient times to protect products during transport and communicate information. Already in Ancient Greece, oil exporters used terracotta containers to protect their product and identify it through the use of fabric or papyrus labels.
The first containers were made from natural materials such as woven baskets, fruit shells and woven palm leaves. But with the passage of time, the packaging industry has undergone a great evolution.
The graphic artifact adhered perfectly to the container, and was immediately recognizable by who had produced it, what its intended use was, who should have used it and in what manner. Furthermore, each product was assigned a very specific container which distinguished it from the others: for example, essential oils were found in small ampoules to identify the high value they represented, wine, on the other hand, has always been seen as a product for conviviality , was placed in large amphorae or demijohns.
In the Middle Ages, labeling became increasingly important for identifying the products of craft guilds and guaranteeing their quality.
Over the years, packaging and labeling technology has progressed
noticeably. The production of paper and cardboard has made it possible to develop increasingly robust and resistant boxes and packaging, while color printing has made it possible to create captivating and detailed labels.
