Since COVID-19, there have been huge issues in the food supply chain and the normal supply routes are not functioning, so packaging is critical in improving shelf life and in getting fresh food directed to the right place while limiting waste. Packaging is an important factor to reduce food waste and also provide protection from various damages during transport. Furthermore, an adequate package reduces the possibility of microbial contamination from the surrounding environment and extends food storage life while preserving its quality. Many consumers are really seeing the benefits of plastic packaging in this area. But there’s still the end-of-life issue to consider. Hence, biodegradable packaging from pulp and paper is gaining interest from the food industry due to its significant impact on shelf-life extension and food-safety. However, it still has many hidden advantages that are very challenging to find and apply to paper-based food packaging. In this live webinar, we will be discussing the COVID-19's impact on the packaging industry, current trend of paper-based food packaging, the next normal for paper packaging design and about food packaging myths and misconceptions.
Join us for a Live Webinar discussing on everything you want to know and not afraid to ask on COVID-19 and FOOD PACKAGING: Driving Trend of F&B Paper Based Packaging. This webinar is organised by Laboratory of Biopolymer and Derivatives (BADs), Institute of Tropical Forestry and Forest Products (INTROP), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM).
