The benefits for nano-packaging, showing how it can overcome current food and drink industry challenges in terms of shelf life, distribution or sustainability, need to become more apparent in order to ensure widespread commercial implementation, says an industry insider.
Graham Moore, a consultant with PIRA International, which tests packaging for industry, said that nano particles and composites as well as nano sensors for distribution chains tend to be the focus of R&D currently but input from food and drink makers is lacking and means take up is limited.
"What can nano do for the food and drink sector? Industry needs to answer this and roundtables involving processors, academia, research groups and commercial developers are essential to highlight sector challenges that nano functionality can overcome as well as weighing up cost over benefit on conventional methods," he argues.
