PROSPECTS
Modified atmosphere packaging gains popularity

More brands in processed meat and seafood adopted modified atmosphere packaging (MAP). This type of packaging contains an optimal combination of pure oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen within a high barrier or permeable packaging type.

Uflex develops a new material with antimicrobial properties

Uflex, a large flexible packaging company based in India, developed a new material that can be placed inside packaging, for example, a plastic pouch that continuously scavenges microbial growth inside the packaging. Following recent testing, this new material significantly enhanced the shelf life of bread inside the packaging and testing will be undertaken on foods with a high fat content and meat, poultry and seafood products.

Increased consumption of meat substitutes aids growth of folding cartons

According to Euromonitor data, from 2018 onwards both meat substitutes and the folding carton percentage share of meat substitutes are forecast to grow significantly. Along with healthy snacking and the growth of ancient grains, the growth of meat substitutes was one of the biggest trends affecting packaged food in the UK at the end of the review period.
