Polymeric materials have revolutionised the way we package store and even cook our food. We now buy soft and alcoholic drinks in transparent, lightc099 plastic bottles, and precooked meals in plastic trays which we reheat in a microwave or conventional oven. This state-of-the-art review draws together the legal framework within which the industry must work, with the technological advances being made both in materials performance and the analysis of migrating monomers and additives. An additional indexed section containing several hundred abstracts from the Rapra Polymer Library database provides useful references for further reading.should be correctly labelled and carry clear instructions for use. ... types of package are discussed: modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) using thermoform-fill-seal machines, MAP using preformed trays, pillow packs and various bulk packs.
