While 79% of consumers prioritize cheese freshness according to a SNS Insider, cheese is a living product susceptible to mold, spoilage, and flavor loss.

Traditional plastic packaging, although effective at preserving shelf life, raises environmental concerns. Biodegradable alternatives like polylactic acid (PLA) are gaining traction, but their oxygen permeability can accelerate cheese ripening by 50%, impacting taste and texture. Furthermore, ensuring compatibility with the diverse cheese varieties – from hard Parmigiano Reggiano to soft, spreadable ricotta – adds another layer of complexity.

On the consumer side, a 72% of millennials prioritize all-natural and healthy products, which includes cheese.

This focus on fresh, high-quality cheese translates to a demand for packaging that extends shelf life and preserves flavor. Technology is answering this call with innovations like active packaging.  This segment is projected to grow by 8.5% annually, due to its ability to incorporate oxygen absorbers, moisture control mechanisms, and even antimicrobials directly into the packaging.  Sustainability is another key driver.
