Packaging and packaging-product interaction

Proper conservation and monitoring of packaged products must be ensured throughout the supply chain. At ITENE we work with several packaging technologies to enable packaging-product interaction by developing active packaging to improve food conservation and to extend product shelf-life.

Solutions to improve packaging and packaging-product interaction

Packaging technologies

  • Microperforated packaging: optimisation using simulation software and application of mathematical models to determine the most appropriate microperforated packaging design.
  • With gas/humidity barrier properties: optimisation of packaging structures with simulation software.
  • Microwaveable/oven-safe containers: optimisation by means of cooking tests with thermographic analysis to ensure homogeneous cooking across the entire packaging surface, taking into account multi-product packaging requirements and desirable finishing touches such as toasted, crunchy and au gratin effects.
  • Active packaging: antimicrobial, antioxidant, CO2-generating, insect repellent, aroma-releasing packaging, packaging that absorbs oxygen, humidity, ethylene and unpleasant odours, etc. Check out our active packaging solutions here.

Why is it necessary to ensure product quality through active packaging and packaging technologies?

  • Better conservation of the product, extended shelf-life and reduced use of chemical preservatives
  • Reduction of food waste
  • Improvement of logistic processes and easier access to more distant markets by increasing shelf-life and maintaining product quality for longer periods of time.
