Course Objectives

The course comprises of packaging. The concept and definition of packaging of fish and fishery products have been explained. Use of glass, plastics and regenerated cellulosic casings explaining manufacturing process and properties have been explained in detail. The closure of glass containers is different from metal can containers both in terms of operation and material used has been highlighted in the course content. The theoretical instruction has been supplemented by practical classes.
