This presentation will describe the status of sustainable food packaging and review some of the current efforts to develop biodegradable packaging materials to prevent pollution and achieve sustainability within the food system. Sustainable and environmentally friendly materials that can replace non-degradable plastics is an important goal to achieve sustainability within the food system; to both extend the shelf life and reduce the environmental food-print of packed food.
