Extended shelf-life is one of the dominating trends in the food industry of today. It offers more value and convenience for retail and consumers while generating sustainable benefits by reducing food loss. Packaging is the centerpiece of extended shelf-life. It can be achieved by retort process which requires a certain product and temperature resistance of the food packaging material. Talking about food the packaging material not only has to stand the requirements of demanding and high performance applications. It also has to fulfil rising requirements in safety and health both during the production process and to guarantee food safety for consumers.
