Writers at Israel21c tell us more about how Israeli innovators are making packaging better by creating materials that extend shelf life and so much more:

Next time you peel an orange, take a moment to inspect its smart natural packaging. Biodegradable layers of “wrapping” protect the fruit from bruising, bugs and pathogens.

Two Israeli moms were inspired by that example to develop environmentally friendly flexible packaging solutions now used in many industries. And this is just one example of Israeli ingenuity meeting significant modern challenges in packaging.

“New packaging solutions in Israel mostly come from our very developed agricultural technology sector,” says Sahar Yazdanpour, manager of food-tech at the Israel Export Institute. “We have strong communities of entrepreneurs, academicians and ag-tech researchers, and together it all helps to bring this sector of smart packaging to a higher level worldwide.”
