It’s estimated that every time we sit down to dinner, half of the time is ours — even in a room full of people.
Do you know what this means for packaging? This means that there are more things, smaller, and obviously less personal items. For those who want to see fewer packages, we all know that the impact is clearly not good.
The science of sustainable development.
In recent months, scientific innovation has been a key feature of environmental packaging. We can see that some of the most promising developments in 2016 include the following:
In a study at the national university of Singapore, it was found that there was a chemical additive that slows the growth of the fungus. Because the growth rate of the fungus is slowed down, the shelf life of perishable food doubles.
The raw material for this new material is chitosan, which we all know in the field of food science and packaging technology.
A sample of packaging that was completely unplaster was designed by a group of Japanese scientists, and it was AGAR made from seaweed.
This concept is the winner of this year’s Lexus design. Since then, the team has been demonstrating the viability of the concept by delivering a bottle of perfume by mail from Tokyo to Milan.
Back to the paradox.
We all know that despite the obvious improvements in technology, we still have a lot of work to do in achieving the packaging industry‘s progress goals.
We need to look to the future. At this point, we should be able to help them. In fact, recently, we have also written an article on sustainability in the pet bottle industry and the extension of packaging in the CPG sustainable development plan.
Recently, do you know another effect of food packaging trends? People who want to solve transportation problems increasingly need to change food packaging.
