Packaging acts as a protective barrier against external factors that can cause edible oils to spoil, such as exposure to air, light, heat, and moisture. Opaque or tinted packaging materials help block light and UV radiation, while impermeable barriers prevent oxygen from reaching the oil, reducing oxidation and rancidity.

Sustainable packaging options for edible oils include recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable materials such as paperboard, cardboard, bio-based plastics, and plant-based films. Additionally, lightweight packaging designs, eco-friendly inks, and minimalistic packaging formats contribute to reducing the environmental footprint of edible oil packaging.

Packaging for edible oils must comply with regulatory standards and requirements related to food safety, labelling, and packaging materials. Regulations may vary by region and cover aspects such as material composition, migration limits, hygiene standards, and allergen labelling to ensure consumer protection and public health.
