|Materials and Technologies for Food and Beverage Packaging X
This year’s annual series on food and beverage materials constitutes a review of the most recent innovations in materials and technologies, following the industry as it continues to evolve in response to new challenges. The industry is looking ahead and trying to envision future challenges and their solutions. Bio- based active and intelligent packaging suggests a very possible alternative. Further research on edible coating based on naturally derived resources to make biopolymers also shows promise, as well as research on reusable packaging, especially for reducing waste in the agro-industry.
