Food packaging of the future

The current push strategy for food packaging does not take sufficient account of the demands, needs and wishes of everyone involved in the chain. Moreover, new distribution channels (e-commerce, food delivery, omnichannel) and an increasing diversity of food products pose new challenges to food packaging. To face these challenges and utilize the opportunities to the full, there is a need for a cross-chain, cross-industry, demand driven approach of food packaging.

The main goal of the feasibility study is to define a mutual vision and strategy concerning the food packaging of the future. This must result in a road map that descibes specific focus areas to deal with technological, legal and/or economic barriers and limitations and to achieve the innovations wanted by companies.
