Anti-fog Coating Keeps Fresh Food Packaging at Its Best

All too many of the fresh salads, ready meals and sliced vegetables displayed in supermarket chiller cabinets never reach consumer households. Inadequate packaging is to blame. Because, when a fog of condensation appears on the clear film wrap, food products rapidly lose their appeal.

According to the UK organisation WRAP, up to 40% of all green convenience food is thrown directly in the bin, partly due to condensation in the packaging. The world’s only full-service emulsifier and stabiliser company, Palsgaard has used its expertise in polymers to come up with a solution: a water-based, anti-fog coating that keeps condensation transparent.

Made from 100% plant-based materials and produced in a
CO2-neutral production plant, the coating could hardly be more sustainable

Rather than accumulating as large drops, the coating ensures that the condensed water forms a thin, transparent film. That means the chilled food under the film wrap stays looking as fresh and desirable as ever – so much less goes to waste.

Sustainable credentials

Made from 100% plant-based materials and produced in a CO2-neutral production plant, the coating – called Einar® 1122 – could hardly be more sustainable. With its properties, the anti-fog coating is a new opportunity to cut global food waste.
