Master of Science in Sustainable Food Packaging

A world without food packaging is unthinkable. It offers numerous advantages in terms of hygiene, food safety, transport, reduction of food waste, etc. However, the current impact of certain materials and uses on the environment is too big and unsustainable. Ghent University therefore wants to stimulate a switch towards 100% reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable packaging, and prepare students to become experts in sustainable food packaging systems.
