ACTIVE PACKAGING TO EXTEND THE LIFE OF PRODUCTS
The European Project "Nafispack" guarantees the security and quality of foods packed along the distribution chain through the development of an innovative packaging system able to use two innovative Technologies: active antimicrobial packaging and intelligent packaging. The Technological Institute of Packaging, Transport and Logistics (ITENE) leads the Project and it is responsible for the development and research related to the selection of the antimicrobial natural agents used in new packaging. ITENE is also in charge of the development and characterisation of these new active materials by extrusion. The representative Spanish enterprises in this Project are Aragonesa de Tintas y Barnices S.A., Envaflex, Verdifresh and Nutreco Servicios S.A.
