Food packaging innovation can dramatically increase profitability

Singapore scientists have developed a packaging material that could help reduce the growing amount of food waste produced in the country.

Its ability to prevent oxygen from entering the packaging can extend the shelf life of food by at least 50 per cent. Oxygen, among other things, is needed for micro-organisms such as mould to grow, and these are the nasty bugs that cause food to turn bad.

Creators of the material are working with home-grown manufacturing company Dou Yee Enterprises to produce it for the retail market. They are starting small, with a few hundred thousand pieces at a time.
