Abstract

In recent years, consumer's consciousness of the strong relationship between food quality and health has extensively impacted the packaging field. Nowadays, indeed, a packaging material is asked to match the handling and storage conditions with the quality and safety of foodstuffs. As a consequence, scientific literature and industrial R&D activities are plenty with attempts to develop new and effective materials that are able to preserve food from degradation in both normal and stressed environmental conditions, resulting in a consistent enhancement of their shelf-life. The packaging science is thus becoming an interdisciplinary research field, involving the expertise of chemists, physicists, engineers and biologists, with the ultimate aim to match the consumers' expectation and government's regulations.
