One of the most innovative developments in food packaging in recent years is the application of active and intelligent packaging. Active packaging is intended to change the condition of the packed food, to extend shelf-life or improve sensory properties while maintaining the freshness and the quality of the food. To do this, the packaging should absorb food-related chemicals or it should release substances such as preservatives, antioxidants, flavourings or colours. For intelligent packaging, the food is intended to influence the packaging so that the packaging gives information about the current condition of the food and/or its storage history.
