The European Union-funded NanoPack Project has had a successful first round of laboratory testing, which is very good news for the future of food packaging. The project is aiming to develop antimicrobial polymer film, which can fight off toxins in food from growing and developing. In one test, scientists who used the film on bread inoculated with mold spores were able to completely prevent the mold from growing any further for nearly four weeks. While the tests so far have only been performed on bread, scientists are confident that this antimicrobial polymer film will be able to achieve the same results with other types of food.
