The growing amount of food wastage across the world is becoming a major concern in the global food industry.

Hence, there is a growing need for effective packaging and preservation of food to ensure a longer shelf life. Consequently, food packaging companies are developing new packaging solutions that can withstand deterioration. Thus, the growing need to avoid food wastage will fuel food packaging market growth during the forecast period.
