It will cover developments in modified atmosphere and vacuum packaging, condition monitoring and the trade-off between functionality, cost and security for temperature monitoring, printed electronics, microencapsulation technology and developments in materials such as graphene.
The groups said it will help attendees understand the rationale of using active and intelligent packaging, find out the latest developments, understand significance of future developments in nanotechnologies and materials and be aware of the barriers and challenges in commercial uptake.
“The food industry is constantly developing and refining new packaging techniques that actively control, monitor and respond to packaged products. Active and intelligent packaging has been gaining in popularity over the last few years,” said Campden BRI.
