NanoPack was present at the Anuga Food Tec conference held in Cologne between 23-26th March.
Tim Devlamynck from BBEU presented the main results of the first-year of the project, including the ability of NanoPack film to prolong additive-free bread shelf life by 27 days.
The presentation was very well received, with many people coming to ask follow-up questions. Visitors also had the chance to meet the team behind the project at the NanoPack booth, and to see prototypes of the antimicrobial film technology.
Overall, there was much interest and a positive attitude towards Nanopack active packaging material. Representatives from the food and packaging industry expressed their interest in testing NanoPack films on their products and mentioned the need of these type of active packaging materials to prolong food shelf life.
Possible applications include meat, dairy, bakery, fresh produce, drinks, iced popsicles.
The success of Nanopack at Anuga Food Tec 2018 shows that the food industry is ready for new packaging technologies that can enhance shelf-life.
