Smart and Active Packing for Margarines
SAP4MA aims to develop active packaging for fat-based products to maximise product life, without compromising organoleptic properties and quality, by integrating functional coatings and printed devices on the packaging. In this sense, the project's main goal is to strengthen research, technological development and innovation in the food sector, through the development of an innovative solution.
- Development of printed devices in a smart label format for food packaging;
- Integration of smart labels into the injection moulding process of food packaging closures;
- Development and application of nano-encapsulated active agents and "Food Approved" and/or "Food Contact Approved" smart coatings.
