Packaging: Extending Shelf Life forum

Packaging for meat and poultry products is an area that is constantly undergoing development and innovation. As well as ensuring that products travel from A to B in optimum condition, the packaging of a product is also integral to its shelf life, and its appeal to the end consumer. It is necessary, but needs to be both practical and appealing.

In this special Global Meat News webinar, we look at the latest innovations in packaging, focusing on shelf-life extension. Increasing the shelf life of the product is important in reducing wastage, and also maintaining the quality of the product. What are the latest methods and technologies available when it comes to shelf-life extension? What benefits can they bring? And how has the globalisation of the meat industry changed things?
