Aluminum is a reactive metal but it is still used for packing food articles. Why?

now it is write
aluminium is a reactive metal but still it is used for packing food bucause when it combines with oxygen it forms oxide and prevents further reaction


Because it helps in protecting food materials and keep moisture and air out. And Al is highly Malleable. 
Corrosion of aluminum can be expressed by the formula: 

2 Al + 3 O2 ------> 2 Al2O3
1 5 1
Doesn't it harm the food material? I mean doesn't it react with the food material?
