Thursday Apr 27, 2023

Find new opportunities in food packaging by reviewing latest barrier innovations, promising materials & technologies for enhanced product shelf-life, improved safety, easier recycling, design flexibility

Donald Rosato will share industry's major innovations from past 12 months, which include:
  • World’s first advanced recycled flexible PolyPropylene (PP) for premium brand, instant noodle, barrier food packaging, based on recycled ocean bound plastic
  • Clear, anti-fogging PolyPropylene (PP) transparent lid to replace an Oriented PolyStyrene (OPS) earlier version for its ready meal food packaging.
  • High-barrier, Low Density PolyEthylene (LDPE), stand-up pouch that can be recycled in curbside recycling schemes.
