Abstract: There has been an increasing interest in antimicrobial food packaging during the last decades. This chapter presents an overview of the recent research and developments in antimicrobial packaging systems containing natural antimicrobial agents including bacteriocins, organic acids, plant extracts and enzymes, and natural antimicrobial polymers such as chitosan. Specific emphasis is given on non-edible films that have a potential to be used as an antimicrobial packaging for the biopreservation of food. Afterwards, the chapter discuss different design considerations required for a successful introduction of antimicrobial packaging systems into the market.
