The discussion includes how smart packaging supports product transparency and authenticity along with the benefits of new technology and standards that are now converging to make inexpensive intelligent packaging economically feasible. We then look to the future to discuss the opportunities that smart packaging can make available using technologies that are now in common use today, transitioning to concepts that are just around the corner as prices for intelligent packaging decrease even further.

We also review how, in addition to the opportunities for customer engagement, smart packaging can also provide benefits that help prevent food wastage and help brand owners reach sustainability goals, particularly by improving consumer recycling of packaging.
