The GLOPACK (Granting society with LOw environmental impact innovative PACKaging) project is investigating food packaging with no environmental footprint and the ability to extend the shelf life of food products.
The project is focusing on three food packaging areas:
- biodegradable materials made from agro-food residues
- active packaging to improve food preservation and shelf life without additives
- RFID enabled wireless food spoilage indicators linked to food date labels
As part of the GLOPACK concept a decision-supporting tool will be developed to help designing and communicating eco-innovative packaging alternatives to all end-users.
