The growing need for better quality packaging, more profitable for the industry and in line with current regulations, led Fraunhofer Chile Research to seek innovative solutions and make them available to its customers.

This is how the link between Fraunhofer Chile's Center for Systems Biotechnology (CSB) and Germany's Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging (IVV), specialists in the field, was established.

Through this nexus, Fraunhofer Chile makes available to its customers all the innovation in packaging and containers, in order to respond their specific needs.

Marnix Doorn, in charge of this joint programme, says: "We will find the best and innovative solution, with state-of-the-art technology for each customer “.

As part of this alliance, Fraunhofer Chile Research (FCR) invited Dr. Cornelia Stramm, Head of Department Materials Development at Fraunhofer IVV.

Dr. Cornelia Stramm has been in Chile since Sunday, August 5, and on Wednesday, August 8, and representing CSB, she attended as lecturer  the Tecfood 2018 Seminar.  Her presentation  about "Tailor-made packaging concepts, towards sustainable solutions" generated great interest by showing the work done in German laboratories and the application of these advances in different processes in the food industry.

During the seminar on behalf of the CSB, Dr. Arturo Bejarano presented his paper "Functional ingredients and extraction technologies".
