Inside Story's news desk takes viewers into the colourful world of food packaging. Three self-contained stories look at materials (relating to function, safety and design), innovation (looking at new techniques) and environmental issues (focusing on plastics). Watch biodegradable plastic decompose, supermarket shelves become hardware racks, and hear experts from Heinz, Cryovac and VISY discuss the development of new packaging. The young reporters help students engage with the subject matter and clearly explain key terms like modified atmosphere and active and aseptic packaging. An informative and fascinating program which will engage students.
