The packing is usually good, but on account of the tin containers often being of very light gauge metal these are easily crushed and dented, and it is a fairly common occurrence to find tins in this condition in cases externally intact and in good order. Owing to the dampness of tropical climates, cardboard boxes are not advisable. An unevenly placed coating of sugar on biscuits may of itself result in their being delivered in a broken condition. Biscuits should be given dry, well ventilated stowage, and storage away from odorous cargoes. Should always be packed in airtight tins when intended for export.
