New developments in packaging materials excite leading CPGs

Abstract:
PD: What about materials development? Is there anything out there that you are excited about? What about biodegradability and nanotechnology?



Rob Weick, vp packaging, ConAgra: A number of material developments are progressing. One of the more dynamic areas is around foaming technologies or technologies that allow you to reduce the density of the materials as a way of creating weight reduction.



Perfecto Perales, director, packaging R&D, Kraft Foods: The price of oil drives a lot of development in the materials space. Degradability, near nano-to-nano...we've researched some of that in the past and continue to look at those.

But you have to ensure that your products are safely produced for the consumer. So you've got to have the science first.
