Pack4Food was founded in 2005 within the framework of an IWT-TD (Technological Services Project) within Ghent University. Meanwhile Pack4Food transformed into a non-profit organization and in addition to giving advice on food packaging it also focuses on research in close collaboration with various research centers and industrial partners. The research topics are defined depending on the collective needs of the member companies.
Pack4Food has successfully completed several collective research projects whose results are widely disseminated. Additionally, Pack4Food also gives lectures on national and international seminars and conferences on various topics within the food packaging subject. The results obtained during these projects allowed to develop a software program that simulates the evolution of oxygen in the headspace of a package (PredOxyPack).
