Publication cover image

A concise overview of food packaging and its role as an integral part of the food product - from preventing contamination to providing consumers with information

Adopting the principle that the package is an integral part of the product - and not just a handy container - the book describes the main principles underlying the use of, innovations in, and pressures on food packaging, and illustrates these with everyday industrially relevant examples. This, together with the list of carefully chosen references, will provide a useful starting point to anyone wishing to learn about food packaging or to persue the subject in greater depth.

The Key Topics in Food Science & Technology Series has been developed to meet a need within industry, education and enforcement bodies for industrially relevant introductory guides to specific aspects of food science and technology. Soft cover: 101 pages
