The GLOPACK project is investigating food packaging with no environmental footprint and the ability to extend the shelf life of food products.

The project is focusing on three food packaging areas:

  1. biodegredable and home compostable food packaging made from agro-food residues,
  2. bio-packaging with advanced active functionalities to improve food preservation and shelf life without additives,
  3. battery-free RIFD bio-sensor to track food freshness.

The GLOPACk project operates a multistakeholder platform to gather the experts of the whole food and packaging supply chain. The members of the Stakeholders' Platform are involved in the actitivies of the project via webinars, stakeholder events and joint development of documents.
