The event

When searching for the steak with the longest shelf life or the freshest milk when shopping, the quality-conscious customer often likes to rearrange the refrigerated section from back to front. This is not really surprising: For in view of food quality, the "freshness" is the criterion named most often. Intelligent packages can show their strengths here: They reliably provide information on the freshness of a product, indicate a longer interruption in the cooling chain or leaky areas with colour changes. 

Of course, intelligent packages entail somewhat higher costs. However, their use especially makes sense with high-quality and very sensitive products, particularly when especially safe and high-priced products are to be offered. For the reduction of avoidable food waste as well, intelligent packaging concepts can make a valuable contribution.

The session explains the intelligent packaging systems available on the market, presents current research results in this sector, provides information on freshness indicators for displaying the microbiological quality of food and about time-temperature indicators for increasing the resource efficiency in supply chains of food requiring refrigeration.
