ITENE DEVELOPS ACTIVE PACKAGING

TO EXTEND THE PRODUCTS SHELF LIFE

ITENE researches and develops packaging for the food industry that

extends the products shelf life by incorporating active substances of

natural origin.

Foodstuffs are different in nature and composition, so specific research

is needed to develop the most suitable solution case by case.


MAIN LINES OF RESEARCH

The active packaging area is focused on two research lines:

- Development of active packaging systems with

scavenging properties (Oxygen, ethylene,humidity, carbon

dioxide, etc.)

- Development of active packaging materials releasing

natural antimicrobials, antioxidants, aromatic

substances, carbon dioxideetc.)

Research is focused on increasing the shelf life of

produce by adjustment of the active packaging

properties to the specific food requirements.

BENEFITS

The use of active packaging systems provides the

following benefits:

- Longer shelf life products

- Optimum conservation of foods

- More natural and safer foods

- Keeping nutritional and sensorial qualities for a longer time

- Use of lower additive contents whose activity lasts longer

as a result of controlled release processes

- Maintains quality and food safety throughout the

distribution cycle

- Reduces logistics costs by offering products with a longer

use by date

- Beneficial for exports

- Reduces products wastage from shelf lines due to

exceeding the use by date

- More appealing to the consumers
