Sustainability Protective Packaging Q&A

  •   What are good flexible packaging laminate (structure) options for pasta/macaroni products in brick packaging? The expected shelf life of the product is one year.

    It depends on the pasta. The packaging would be different on wet vs dry pasta. If it is dry pasta, a dust cover is necessary. If it is wet and must be refrigerated, then an active barrier material with oxygen scavenging capabilities, like Sealed Air’s Freshness Plus, would help extend the shelf life of the product. However, the max shelf life on wet pasta in FP is approximately 100 days.
