Linpac Packaging, and Addmaster, a supplier of performance additives to industry, have developed a range of trays and lidding films with built-in antimicrobial technology to reduce bacteria growth on the outer packaging of fresh meat.

Addmaster’s Biomaster antimicrobial technology is a silver-based additive that can be added into any plastic, paper, textile, paint or coating product.

The treated products have reportedly been proven to reduce the growth of Campylobacter on their surface by up to 99.99%.

“While the correct handling and preparation of food by consumers at home prevents contamination, our work with Addmaster is addressing concerns raised by our customers and is helping them to reduce the chances of bacterial growth on the outer packaging of fresh meat products in the stages between farm and fork,” says Alan Davey, director of innovation at Linpac Packaging.
