Abstract

Packaging safety is a very broad topic covering the whole packaging value chain. Safety aspects are recognized when packaging materials are selected for a certain purpose, when packaging materials are converted into packages, when packages are filled and closed, when packages are distributed, when these are used at home and finally when recycled. In this paper the safety issues related to new biomaterials, their functioning in package converting and filling are discussed. The main objective is to have a safely closed package made from renewable materials that can retain modified atmosphere (MAP) for a selected product. Further the needed barrier and detection of leaks are discussed. The possibility of the package to communicate the condition of the packed product, in an understandable way, during the shelf life of the product is reported. The paper is part of the on-going report from the on-going project "Safe Food Packages in the Future" carried out by Lappeenranta University of Technology, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Åbo Akademi University.
