In response, the company is organising a seminar on 21 October in collaboration with the Active and Intelligent Packaging Industry Association (AIPIA). It will focus on aspects of these important developments and how they are applied to food packaging.

“It will help delegates understand the rationale underpinning the use of active and intelligent packaging, and the significance of future developments in nanotechnologies and materials,” said Event Director Mike Bonin. “It will also help them keep abreast of the latest developments and be aware of the barriers and challenges involved in greater commercial uptake.”

Key areas to be covered include:

 Developments in modified atmosphere and vacuum packaging

 Condition monitoring and the trade-off between functionality, cost and security for temperature monitoring solutions

 Printed electronics

 Microencapsulation technology and food packaging applications

 Developments in materials: Graphene

 Overcoming barriers to commercial uptake of active and intelligent packaging”
