ITENE

Packaging plays a key role in the preservation and protection of food and can also provide valuable information to the consumer about the product to avoid unnecessary food losses
The Packaging, Transport and Logistics Research Center-ITENE, strongly believes in the Save-Food initiative and the important role that packaging can play to reach its aim.

ITENE research is compromised with food waste and food losses reduction through the development of Active packaging able to extend product shelf life; Smart indicators (freshness, TTi, openning, etc.) to help consumer to evaluate the product safety further than printed expiration date; Smart recycling systems able to separate food fractions from packaging in order to make them suitable for a wide range of valorizing processes.
