Adding to this, PET delivers excellent performance in extreme conditions such as high temperature, moisture, and humidity. PET packaging is preferred in the food industry because it maintains the freshness of food items and increases the shelf life. It is also highly used in beverages and CSD (carbonated soda drinks) because of its anti-contaminable property.
