A US company, MonoSol, has developed a food packaging technology that dissolves when exposed to water and said it is ready for commercial roll-out as soon as individual customers' needs are satisfied. The edible packaging, which dissolves in hot water, leaves no detectable tastes or smell.
"We believe a market exists for dissolvable pouch packaging to address the macrotrends in the food sector such as convenient delivery, portion control, replacing primary packaging," said Matt Scearce, media and communications manager.
"MonoSol's portfolio of non-edible water soluble films have been used for decades in various industries to deliver ingredients such as cleaners and detergents, agrochemicals and fertilizers, as well as use in hospitals."
