About this book

The book will be focused on the three most important aspects of food packaging: Modeling, Materials and Packaging Strategies. The modeling section will provide a complete overview of mass transport phenomena in polymers intended for food packaging applications. The materials section will cover the most interesting problem-solving solutions in the field of food packaging, i.e., low environmental impact active films with antimicrobial activity. Lastly, the packaging section will provide an overview of the most recent approaches used to prolong the shelf life of several food products.                                                                               

About the authors

Matteo Alessandro Del Nobile is Full Professor at the Department of Agricultural Sciences, Food, and Environment, University of Foggia, Italy. His main areas of interest include mass diffusion through polymeric materials, packaging structure design, and functional foods. These topics have been approached from both a theoretical and an experimental point of view. He has published over 150 papers on topics related to polymer and food science.

 Amalia Conte is a Researcher at the Department of Agricultural Sciences, Food, and Environment, University of Foggia, Italy. Her main interests lie in the development and validation of food with functional properties, and the studying of preservation systems for fresh food. Conte is co-author of more than 80 scientific publications in international journals, and has presented numerous works at international conferences on food technology.
