Abstract: In the food packaging sector, innovative packaging technologies have been developed including active packaging. Thereby, antimicrobial packaging systems have been designed to inhibit the growth of spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms in packaged food. In this manner, the shelf life of food products can be extended while ensuring their quality, safety, and integrity. This in turn can lead to a reduction of food waste and thereby contribute to a more sustainable handling of food. Taken into account the replacement of the petroleum‐based commodity plastics by materials arising from biological and renewable resources, this chapter presents the latest developments of sustainable antimicrobial packaging systems for potential food application. The focus is on bioactive substances that have been incorporated into biopolymer matrices derived from renewable resources and that have been shown to provide antimicrobial activity against foodborne pathogens and spoilage microorganisms. Special emphasis is placed on publications where the antimicrobial packaging has been successfully tested on food systems. In addition, the role of active packaging, the functions of antimicrobial food packaging systems, and the most studied bioactive compounds such as essential oils, phenolic compounds, organic acids, bacteriocins, enzymes, and chitosan are elucidated.
