Like any other industry, the food processing and packaging sector is also undergoing unprecedented changes since the last couple of years. With digital advances driving most of these transformations, manufacturers are heavily incorporating premium technology to allure customers. To begin with, manufacturers are investing in technology-enabled solutions to produce smart labels on food packages. These patented smart labels include NFC chips or printed QR codes that can be easily scanned by using a mobile phone to gain information about the product–shelf life, the authenticity of the brand, date of manufacture, and more. Besides, smart packaging also tracks several parameters like pH, temperature, fermentation to ensure freshness, FSMA compliance with health standards information, among others. In fact, to make lives of busy consumers easier, brands are going the extra mile to provide convenient on-the-go packaging.
In addition, to increase the shelf life of these food products, manufacturers are using non-thermal technologies like high-pressure processing, pulsed-electric fields, and UV to eradicate chances of microbial growth and keep the nutrient profile high. Manufacturers have also addressed the increasing demand for sustainable solutions and are mostly resorting to paper-based packaging material that can either be recycled and reused easily or are compostable. To that end, manufacturers are also increasing the production of functional foods that promote a healthy lifestyle. Hence, they have come with plant-based substitutes that are nutritionally enriched, yet taste good. These food alternatives are outpacing environmentally taxing animal products, thereby negating unhealthy food options.
