Edible packaging refers to the environment-friendly technique for packaging of various food items. The packaging is made up of renewable resources and is completely non-toxic and biodegradable and considered safe for human consumption. Moreover, edible films and coatings allow the products to be fresh and help enhance the food quality, product shelf life, and food safety. The ingredients used in the packaging include antioxidants and antimicrobials, which conserve food quality by creating an enhanced oxygen barrier property. Edible films are made up of lipids, proteins, and polysaccharides, which is expected to be easily consumed with the food products and are capable to enhance the taste, sweetness, and color of food.

Reduction in packaging waste, increase in consumption of processed food & beverages, rise in hygiene concerns among people, and enhanced conservation of food quality and shelf life of products are the factors that support the growth of edible packaging market. Moreover, to preserve environment and reduce the usage of plastics in packaging, certain regulations are set up to encourage the usage of edible packaging materials. However, high cost of edible packaging materials as compared to synthetic packaging materials, dietary allergies, and intolerances related with certain packaging materials are expected to hamper the edible packaging market growth. Rise in awareness about edible packaging and reduced manufacturing costs of packaging provide ample opportunities for the manufacturers in the edible packaging market.
