IQE’s commitment to the environment has led it to carry out research into the use of more eco-friendly raw materials
This initiative seeks to improve the quality and preservation of fresh fish, a highly perishable food which is increasingly sold in packed formats. By increasing the quality of this product via its packaging there will be fewer losses due to expiration and less food poisoning incidents caused by consuming unsafe products.
The aim of RIZEOPACK is to develop active packaging that is capable of improving the preservation conditions of packed fresh fish, reducing the growth of microorganisms and oxidative processes.
This project is funded by RETOS-COLABORACIÓN under the Spanish State programme of R+D+i addressing Challenges in Society, of the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (Exp. RTC-2014-3017-2) in consortium with the Technological Institute of Packaging, Transport and Logistics (ITENE), Maicerías Españolas S.A. and Blister&Pack S.L.
