Posted by Admin
The PS foam lunch box first appeared in China in 1987. This year, the first PS foam plastic lunch box production line was introduced from Japan to China. Due to its low price and easy use, this kind of lunch box has become popular at an alarming rate. As of the end of the 1990s, China produced 5 billion PS foam lunch boxes every year, flooding Luxiang for a while, everywhere.
So far, the sales and supply market of plastic lunch boxes has long been incomplete, and there are "black heart lunch boxes" everywhere. Nowadays, it is not easy to avoid such "black heart lunch boxes". Because the "qualified rate of disposable lunch boxes on the market is less than half."
Why is there such a market situation? In fact, it is not difficult to find that consumers, manufacturers, and sales suppliers are all pursuing "increasing interests".
"Profit is a question of ^", if you use food-grade polypropylene resin raw materials to produce high-quality lunch boxes, the price per ton of raw materials is 11,000 yuan. The price of industrial waste plastic is 5,000 yuan per ton, and inferior industrial calcium carbonate fillers are cheaper, only 2,000 yuan per ton. When converted, the cost of the "black heart lunch box" can be reduced by half, and there is more room for profit.
Although from the quality point of view, high-quality lunch boxes have incomparable advantages: because of the high purity of polypropylene, such lunch boxes are strong, do not leak, and have low health hazards. But for those consumers who buy meal boxes-various restaurants, compared with quality and safety, price is often an important factor they consider. As a result, low-priced and inferior "black heart lunch boxes" have gained the upper hand again and again, squeezing most of the market share.
