Sustainable Packaging

Development of biodegradable, antimicrobial packaging made from renewable materials is underway incorporating Silver Shell nano silver chitosan technology to provide antimicrobial properties to reduce bacterial and fungal growth. The possibility of shifting the food industry to biodegradable materials with antimicrobial properties is monumental. New bio-plastic material will improve food safety from field to table.

Benefits for growers are less spoilage and higher incomes. Benefits to consumers are improved food safety, more nutritious food, and reduced food costs by the extension of after purchase shelf life.
