Part of the Food Microbiology and Food Safety book series (FMFS)


Food packaging is increasingly becoming important in enhancing the microbiological safety and quality of a food product. Poultry meat can be contaminated with a variety of spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms. The common packaging systems used for poultry meat and products include tray and overwrap, modified atmosphere packaging, and vacuum packaging. In addition, various active packaging technologies such as antimicrobial packaging, oxygen scavengers, and carbon dioxide emitters are introduced to poultry packaging applications. Intelligent packaging concepts, including time-temperature, gas, and freshness indicators and sensors, have also been explored for possible commercialization in poultry packaging. Advances in food packaging technologies play a significant role in providing wholesome poultry products to consumers.
