YPACK has created organic plastic substitute to conventional plastic food packaging technique. The compostable packaging solution is prepared from eco-friendly biopolymer - poly (3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxy valerate) (PHBV) - that is derived from micro-cellulose of almond shells and industrial by-products (cheese whey). Biodegradability tests record complete degradation within 3 months.

Moreover, several novel concepts in food packaging are introduced during previous years such as smart antimicrobial coatings. The purpose of smart antimicrobial coatings is to mitigate the growth of microbes, while sensors monitor chemical and physical conditions that reflect or influence the food product quality. These add-ons have positive health, socio-economic, and environmental effects, which will be further augmented by carrying out the smart functions with the help of robust technologies and renewable natural materials.
