Active and Modified Atmospheric Packaging to be Used Largely for Meat, Poultry, and Seafood
Compared to packaging other food products including bakery and confectionery, fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and other processed food products, active and modified atmospheric packaging is likely to be used largely in packaging meat, poultry, and seafood. The active and modified atmospheric packaging is highly preferred by food retailers as it lowers the cost of storage and production. It also helps in eliminating the need for chemical preservatives. However, the cost of materials and machines in active and modified atmospheric packaging is high, hence, the manufacturers are focusing on using materials and machines that are low in cost and eco-friendly.
Increasing popularity of meat, seafood, poultry products is also resulting in the growth of active and modified atmospheric packaging. Moreover, the rise in the demand for fresh fruits and vegetables and ready-to-eat food products is also fueling the growth of the global market for active and modified atmospheric packaging.
Although the modified atmospheric packaging is used on a large scale, researchers and scientists are focusing on developing active and modified atmospheric packaging as per the requirement of customers, providing environmentally friendly design, and enhancing the quality of the product packed in it. Moreover, advancement in technology is also resulting in the use of sensors in the packaging industry. Hence, smart packages are also gaining popularity across various industries. A trend towards minimally processed food, and ready to eat fruit and vegetables is also resulting in the growth of the global active and modified atmospheric packaging market. Sensor-based packages also indicate ripeness and spoilage of the food products, this also resulting in its popularity.
