Reducing food waste with antimicrobial packaging


Food spoilage is one of the key challenges in the reduction of global food waste.


Antimicrobial packaging provides an option to inhibit the spoilage bacteria growing on foods; significantly extending the shelf life of foods.

This kind of packaging not only had the potential to reduce food waste, but it also supports healthy food products. Antimicrobial packaging enables foods to be processed without chemical preservatives which has been traditionally used to prolong shelf life and considered an unhealthy practice. With antimicrobial packaging, the customers can consume food products that are preservative-free.
