Shelf Life Extension by Packaging

Shelf Life Extension by Packaging

Consumers now demand fresher ‘cleaner’ food, with less preservatives. So the packaging is now at the forefront of helping food suppliers to make foods last longer by reducing or slowing harmful gases developing (for example ethylene in ripening fruit) or inhibiting microbial and fungal growth on everything from bread to fish and meats. Barrier, nano, additives and coating technologies are all part of the Active & Intelligent Packaging armoury.
