When purchasing food products, consumers have to be confident that the products are safe and fresh. Most food products are packed and the product package should give all the necessary information and, at the same time, promote the product and the brand. In addition, new tendencies towards to new renewable and biodegradable packages that reduce the use of oil-based raw materials and restrain the continuously worsening littering call more sustainable packaging solutions. These requirements represent challenges for the food production chain and new methods for improving product safety, communication and authenticity guarantee have to be developed. This paper presents new methods that have been developed for these specific purposes for the food production chain. These methods include new kind of barrier layer for decreasing leakage and migration of substances (through the package and from the packaging material), inkjet printed leakage indicator for detecting if the package containing modified atmosphere that protect the packed food has been leaking thus causing food spoilage, and markings done directly on food products in order to improve authenticity, traceability and thus product safety [1, 2].

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
