News (smart packaging)


After consultation with its partners from associations, industry and the trade fair advisory board, Messe Düsseldorf has decided to cancel interpack and components 2021 from 25 February to 3 March due to the restrictions caused by the Covid 19 pandemic.


Ynvisible Interactive Inc. (Vancouver, Canada) has recently been chosen by Innoscentia AB for its display solutions that are now being used for dynamic expiry date labels on food packages. Instead of static expiry date estimations on the packages, Innoscentia has developed materials that combine with the Ynvisible display, enabling real-time quality monitoring of the food. This solution aims to reduce food waste significantly and detect spoiled food in time, even before the expiry date.
