Food Supply Chains are paying more and more attention to adopt innovative packaging systems for their products in order to guarantee quality and to decrease their environmental and economic impacts. In this paper, a critical analysis of traditional packaging solutions, such as cardboard boxes and reusable plastic containers (RPCs), has permitted to introduce two innovative packages: cardboard boxes with removable plastic films and RPCs with cardboard bottom. The solutions have been evaluated and analysed with new analytical models in several scenarios. At the end the research agenda shows the next steps of this study.

Abstract

Food Supply Chains are paying more and more attention to adopt innovative packaging systems for their products in order to guarantee quality and to decrease their environmental and economic impacts. In this paper, a critical analysis of traditional packaging solutions, such as cardboard boxes and reusable plastic containers (RPCs), has permitted to introduce two innovative packages: cardboard boxes with removable plastic films and RPCs with cardboard bottom. The solutions have been evaluated and analysed with new analytical models in several scenarios. At the end the research agenda shows the next steps of this study.
