Antimicrobial packaging is one of the new active and intellegent packaging concepts developed as a response to industry and consumer demand, and market trends. The technology impacts shelf-life extension, food quality, and safety. Direct surface application of antimicrobial substances onto food is limited due to rapid diffusion from the surface into the food mass. However, the uses of packaging paper and films containing antimicrobial agents are more efficient due to the mechanism of slow migration from the packaging material to the surface of food. MicrobeGuard's FoodTouch® products are the first to market antimicrobial paper products that help keep food fresher longer. Here are a number of links to active packaging information and resources for further study.
