Market Insights about the Packaging Sector

The food industry needs to focus on innovation in the following key areas:

  • – Food Processing
  • – Increasing hygiene and food security
  • – Reducing food waste
  • – Enhancing the information received by the consumer, especially regarding labelling

Among the above listed key aspects, both photonics and packaging have a huge potential. In fact, packaging is one of the steps of the food value chain and therefore a cross-sectorial approach is recommended to integrate solutions from other sectors, such as packaging and photonics. Thus, solutions will have a major range of innovation in the food industry. Furthermore, packaging has an enabling role in the Circular Economy: by optimising resources, reducing the waste and extending the value of products.
