CHAPTER ONE
1.0    INTRODUCTION
Historically, management has considered packaging significantly only for the purpose of containing the product and had assigned the sole responsibility of packaging to the production department. However, modern managers regard packaging as a supplementary, promotional tool for their product. It has been  shown that in self service stores, it is packaging that does the selling. No wonder it is after regarded as the silent salesman.
        Packaging involves enclosing merchandize container for marketing display, sanitation, convenient in handling and use safety and preservation. Sincelites when industry has grown steadly with period of  rapid expansion occurring intermittently. The major revolution merchandizing era when mass-production teaching we were inaugurated and individual sealed packages replaced bulk merchandise.

Packaging has gone all the way back to the dawn of history when primitives’ societies carry berries (fruits) and other goods from the forest to the case using animal skin, grass on thatch baskets, palm frosts, etc. as containers for centuries packaging primary role was to hold, protect and transport goods from the manufacturers to the users of industrial goods.

The type an level of package adopted depends on the type of product  marketed.

That was what Zan cosmetics and TEA did.
