Key Developments in the Antimicrobial Packaging Ingredients for Food Packaging Market

While the market has long been in the food industry, beverage companies are discovering new revenue streams, particularly in dairy-based beverages and drinks, both non-alcoholic and alcoholic. The food business will work closely with scientific safety analyses to understand the potential hazards as the sector transitions from traditional plastic packaging to the latest active packaging & coatings.

YPACK has developed an organic plastic alternative to traditional plastic food packing. The compostable packaging solution is made from an environmentally beneficial biopolymer called poly (3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxy valerate) (PHBV), which is made from almond shell microcellulose and industrial waste (cheese whey). Biodegradability tests show that the material degrades completely in three months.

In addition, various unique food packaging concepts, such as smart antimicrobial coatings, have been released in recent years. Smart antimicrobial coatings are designed to inhibit microbe development, while sensors monitor chemical and physical factors that reflect or influence food product quality. These add-ons offer positive health, socioeconomic, and environmental consequences, which will be amplified by implementing smart functions using reliable technology and renewable natural materials.
