Author(s): Dr. Prachi Avinash and Dr. Kusum Mittal
Food packaging is important in today’s society as it surrounds, enhances and protects the goods we buy, from the moment they are processed and manufactured through storage and retailing to the final consumer. With the advancement of science, various packaging materials came into existence. With the growing concern for environment in recent times, factors such as eco-friendliness and chemical composition started playing equally important role in the selection of packaging materials. The continued quest for innovation in food and beverage packaging is mostly driven by consumer needs and demands influenced by changing global trends, such as increased life expectancy, fewer organisations investing in food production and distribution. This paper focuses on the functions, materials and intelligent innovations in food packaging technology.
