From a packaging point of view, beverages are one of the most interesting food categories. Beverage packaging includes nearly all kinds of materials: glass, PET, cardboard, metal cans, and polymer films for pouches. Take away beverage packaging were made of polystyrene, polypropylene or coated cardboard, as well as from renewable resources. Closures of bottles and pouches were made of polyolefins, as well as from metal with polymer inlays. Beverage packaging may be refillable or non-refillable. Some are manufactured via post-consumer recyclables. Beverage packaging is also an interesting field for active and intelligent packaging materials. For example, active oxygen scavengers are already introduced for sensitive beverages like juices or beer.
No other food category has such a wide variety of packaging materials. This makes beverage packaging an interesting research field with a high potential for new packaging innovations.
- This Special Issue includes the following topics of beverage packaging:
- Beverage packaging materials
- Filling technology
- Active and intelligent packaging
- Renewable resources and recycling
- Sensory properties of packed beverages
- Food law compliance testing
