ACTION CALL: P24/024/3 Perforated packaging material.

Challenge:  A perforated packaging material, either permeable or semi-permeable to allow the controlled release of active ingredients.

Client: Global FMCG manufacturer

Background: A packaging material, similar to a tea-bag, is used to contain a functional product.  The current product is limited in its ability to control the release of the functional components of the product.  

Goal: The client is developing a novel product that is able to control the release of functional components using a permeable or semi permeable packaging, the packaging material must be:

  • Smooth to touch.
  • Ideally be semi-permeable to allow ingress of some water in order to activate the product, in a controlled manner, so that the functional components inside are not immediately solubilised.
  • Ideally be semi-permeable to enable the controlled release of partially solubilised functional components contained inside.
  • Ingredients and technologies at all stages of technology readiness, from early-stage research and development to commercially available solutions, will be considered.
  • Packaging will be approved as a ‘Food Contact Material’
  • Ingredients will ideally be approved/ or in the process of being approved for use in Europe.
