Increasing Consumption of Preservative-free Food and Beverages Amplifying growth Opportunities for Aseptic Paper Packaging

Preservatives are artificial or naturally occurring chemical compounds with special characteristics that stop the growth of microorganisms in foods or beverages. They are also used to add appeal to the packaged food or beverage such as flavor and color. These preservatives help increase the shelf life of various products through different reactions, acting as antioxidants or decreasing the rate of reaction. These work well in preserving the food. However, they can cause side effects upon consumption.

The elimination of packaging preservatives offers a good incentive for the demand for aseptic packaging. As aseptic carton packaging preserves food and beverage composition without introducing any preservatives, it is projected that the packaging technology would help the food & beverages industry reduce the use of preservatives in the packaging of different items.

Gradual Shift toward Alternate Packaging Solutions Adding Challenges for Aseptic Paper Packaging Market Growth
