abstract
Packaging materials become a major player in our fast moving society. Their initial most important function as being able to contain food products making them transportable, is nowadays only one of the many functions. In general, three major functions have joined this function of containment: protection, convenience and marketing. With regard to protection, this has resulted in an increasing demand for barrier materials in packaging including absorbing techniques to remove the, in most cases unwanted, residual oxygen. There are also more packaging developments for the growing market in ready-to-eat meals as well as other products of the fresh market. Furthermore, there is an increasing interest for more informative functions of intelligent packaging. Last but certainly not least, sustainability becomes a very important factor in the packaging industry. This article describes each of these trends more into detail.
