Track: 1 Food Packaging:

Food Packaging plays such an important role in the preservation and marketability of a product, many companies seek a contract packaging service to help them obtain the best quality packaging available. Benefits to a co-manufacturer include cost, speed, quality and innovation. The primary purpose of food packaging must continue to be maintaining the safety, wholesomeness, and quality of food. The impact of packaging waste on the environment can be minimized by prudently selecting materials and reviewing expectations of packaging in terms of environmental impact. Knowledgeable efforts by industry, government, and consumers will promote continued improvement, and an understanding of the functional characteristics of packaging will prevent much of the well-intentioned but ill-advised solutions that do not adequately account for both pre consumer and postconsumer packaging factors.

Track :5 Nanotechnology in Food Packaging:

Nanomaterials are increasingly being used in the food packaging industry due to the range of advanced functional properties they can bring to packaging materials. Nanotechnology-enabled food packaging can generally be divided into three main categories - improved packaging, active packaging, intelligent /smart packaging. A coating of metal or glass, which are totally impermeable to gases, would prevent this from happening - this is obviously impractical however, as it would reduce flexibility, and would be much more expensive than plastic packaging. This is where nanotechnology comes to the rescue - a coating of clay nanoparticles just a few nanometres thick is sufficient to create an impermeable layer, without compromising on flexibility or adding a great deal to the cost. The most active area of food nanoscience research and development is packaging: the global nano-enabled food and beverage packaging market was 4.13 billion US dollars in 2008 and has been projected to grow to 7.3 billion by 2014, representing an annual growth rate of 11.65%.

Track :10 Future Innovation of Bio-based Packaging:

Bio-based food packaging materials are derived from renewable sources and are potentially biodegradable that is composting (which is a technique for waste management). Bio based packaging materials include both edible coatings and edible films along with primary and secondary packaging materials. At the turn of the last century most non-fuel industrial products; dyes, inks, paint, medicines, chemicals, clothing, synthetic fibres and plastics were made from bio based resources. During the last years, the leading world research teams have been working on developing new biodegradable and edible packaging based on renewable biological sources, the so called “regulated life cycle materials”. By the 1970s petroleum derived materials had, to a large extent, replaced those materials derived from natural resources. Recent developments are raising the prospects that naturally derived resources again will be a major contributor to the production of industrial products. Bio based /green polymers in food packaging are the wave of the future. The Scientific challenge is to find such applications and thus to create the demand for large scale production of biopolymers/ biomaterials that would help in attaining the sustainable development of green materials in contrast to petroleum.

Germany stands at the forefront of food and beverage market development as it rises to meet the international challenge of increased demand for safe and healthy foodstuffs. Demand for functional foods alone has established Germany as a European leader, with the organic food segment experiencing an increase of some 250 percent in sales within a decade. Around 82 million consumers help make Germany the largest food and beverage retail market in Europe. Germany’s food and beverage industry is the fourth largest industry sector in Germany – generating production value of EUR 175.2 billion from the year 2013 onwards.

Germany has the largest food processing sector in Europe. With a yearly turnover of 175 billion Euros and approximately 555,000 employees, Germany has the largest food processing industry of Europe. According to estimates, in the last year, 6,000 producers filled supermarket shelves with around 170,000 products.

The sector is the third most important German industry and comprises of small and medium sized businesses, many of which are very traditional family companies and successful producers of international German specialties.

Beer is one of the most preferred alcoholic beverages in Europe. There are large numbers of local players in Europe with no international presence. The advent of beer started in Western Europe and later on spread to Eastern Europe. Ukraine and Russia are some of the major countries boosting the demand for beer in Eastern Europe. However, due to high market penetration Western and Northern Europe is expected to have stable growth throughout the forecast period. The consumption rate of beer in Europe is the higher compared to other alcoholic beverages such as Wine and Spirits (Whiskey, Vodka, Rum and various others). Germany held the largest market share in Europe beer market followed by the U.K.

Focus on the sectors

The turnover of food and beverage represent 84.5% and 15.5%, respectively.
In the food area (104.797 million euro), the milk and dairy sector presents the largest share with 14%, followed by the confectionery sector with 11.5%, meats processing with 7.6%, pasta with 4.1%, food oil with 4%, frozen foods with 3.9% and vegetable preserves with 3.5%.
The remaining 35.9% refers to a wide range of food products.
It is important to emphasize that the last few years have seen a trend of progressive growth of so-called “advanced” products (sauces, ready meals, frozen foods, coffee pads, refrigerated ready meals, etc.). In 2010, these products reached a share of circa 10% and show promising growth potential.

Projection: Growth of Food Packaging sector for upcoming years

Revenues forecasts to 2024 for the overall world food packaging market and 6 submarkets - discover the industry's prospects, finding promising places for investments and revenues.
The top five disruptive technologies in flexible packaging are forecast to be intelligent (smart) packaging, recyclability, packaging open ability, bio-based polymers and digital printing. Based on current flexible packaging markets, the centre of attention within the report is inevitably food and beverage packaging, but other applications are considered including pharmaceuticals, household chemicals, medical devices and electronics, together with a wide range of flexible packaging materials including plastics, paper and metal foils.
High growth is expected in Europe and North America, as well as in the emerging markets of Asia and Central and South America.
The market is forecast to grow at an annual average rate of 3% reaching $248 billion in 2020. Food Packaging Market forecasts to 2024 for 14 leading countries:

The innovation and implementation of smart and active packaging over the next 10 years will be the key disruptive factor affecting the flexible packaging industry. So far, these technologies have been retarded by high cost, consumer resistance to items such as sachets in packaging, and concerns about excessive packaging. However, the deployment of intelligent packaging is expected to become much more frequent with decreasing cost, increasing emphasis on food safety, anti-counterfeiting, new regulations and brand owner/consumer demand.
The second most disruptive technology in flexible packaging is recyclability. Because of the small amount of material used in a flexible package, it generates much less waste than other formats. More easily recyclable materials and barrier structures, including monolayers, are expected to be introduced over the next 10 years.
