Innovation in packaging: Carton Skin and the key role of sustainable cardboard

Over the years, packaging has undergone a significant transformation, driven by evolving consumer needs, the search for more sustainable solutions and continuous technological innovation.

One of the main changes has been the transition from traditional materials – such as plastic and glass – to more sustainable solutions, such as cardboard and bioplastic. This change was motivated both by the consumers’ growing environmental awareness and the need to reduce the industry’s overall environmental impact.

Packaging then underwent an important evolution in terms of design and functionality, becoming increasingly ergonomic, easy to open and recyclable, with an overall improvement in the consumer experience. The advent of digital printing has finally enabled large-scale customization, allowing brands to create unique and distinctive packaging.

Food packaging at the center of progress

The food packaging sector has been one of the most exposed to progress, innovation and new technologies. Technological innovations have in fact revolutionized the preservation, freshness and safety of products, especially with the introduction of special coatings that extend the shelf-life of food products, reducing waste and improving quality.

Active and intelligent packaging technology has then allowed manufacturers to monitor and control the storage conditions of products in real time, ensuring the safety and freshness of food throughout the distribution chain. 

At the same time, the use of antimicrobial materials has helped reduce the risk of bacterial contamination and improved food safety.

Carton Skin: the innovative packaging by Cartotecnica Moreschini

Carton Skin, the food packaging created by Cartotecnica Moreschini, is a completely customizable cardboard blister that favors a vacuum preservation system capable of keeping meat, cured meats and any other fresh product perfectly intact.

Carton skin is a cardboard packaging that excellently defends the organoleptic characteristics of fresh foods (such as meat and fish), preserves their natural color and increases their “shelf life”.

Specifically, the packaging inside the Moreschini skin pack requires a film to adhere to the product using vacuum technology. At a second stage, the film is sealed to the lower support to allow the package to be hermetically sealed. 

Therefore the film becomes a “second skin” for the product, protecting it and preserving it for longer.
