Scientists develop antibacterial textures for use on food packaging

Scientists may have found a breakthrough that could help retailers struggling to package their products due to supply chain issues.

Researchers have developed a natural antibacterial texture to improve shelf life and significantly reduce waste. It is similar to the bacteria-destroying effect of insect wings.

That nano-texture kills up to 70 percent of bacteria and keeps its effectiveness when transferred to synthetic plastic. Scientists say that the next steps are to upscale the technology and find the best way to mass-produce.
