Our partner the National Agronomic Institute of Tunisia (INAT) and the Packaging Technical Center PACKTEC signed Monday, May 22, 2023, a collaborative research agreement in the framework of the FoodLAND Project. The purpose of this research project is to develop bio-based packaging from agricultural by-products that will be used to package food products.

The aim is to replace plastic materials of fossil origin, which have a devastating impact on the environment, with biodegradable products capable of protecting the food product and maintaining all its taste and nutritional characteristics.

Being the technical reference at the national level in the field of packaging, Packtec has a major role in bringing together the academic and research world with the industrial sector, as supporting the valorization of the results of scientific research has always been one of the most sought-after objectives of the Center, not only because of the technological resources with which it is endowed but also because of the team of engineers who contribute effectively to the development of this type of initiative in the field of R&D.
Through this agreement, INAT aims to strengthen its links with the national structures of its socio-professional environment.
