It’s no surprise that consumers want fresher foods with fewer additives and more natural nutritional value. In fact, according to a new infographic produced by Mitsubishi Gas Chemical America, 48 percent of customers avoid foods with artificial preservatives and 35 percent avoid foods with artificial flavors. This means brands are challenged to leverage packaging technologies that can help food last longer without additional chemicals.
In the infographic below, Mitsubishi provides details on how removing oxygen from packaged foods can help brands meet consumer demands for fresh, natural foods. It offers information about how an oxygen absorbing technology embedded within packaging film can remove the oxygen trapped within the package. “This infographic offers insights into how you can meet growing consumer demands for natural foods and extend shelf life at the same time,” says Sean Hael, Manager, Marketing and Sales at Mitsubishi Gas Chemical America.
