SCGP has been engaging in research and development of innovative food packaging that keeps up with new lifestyles, tackles storage problems and increases conveniences for customers and consumers. Two new innovative packagings from SCGP to usher in the season of fruits are: OptiBreath® to keep fruits and vegetables fresh longer, and Odor LockTM, made from special plastics, to lock in aromas of food and fruits and prevent condensation when stored in the refrigerator.

SCGP understands the importance of sustained research and development to innovate solutions that respond to various needs and solve problems for customers and consumers as well as add value to products and enhance life conveniences. Some of these include food packaging that needs not be cut open before being heated in a microwave oven or packaging cover that can be easily peeled off. Such attention to R&D demonstrates the company’s leadership in integrated product innovations in ASEAN.

Most recently, SCGP has researched and developed new and innovative food packaging capable of prolonging the freshness of fruits and vegetables. OptiBreath® keeps fruits and vegetables fresh longer by controlling the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide inside and outside the packaging at an appropriate level to reduce the growth of microorganisms so as to maintain the quality of produce, their freshness, nutritional values, and natural flavors. Vegetables can be kept fresh longer by 3-5 days and fruits by 7-11 days, thus helping to reduce storage costs and increase opportunities for upcountry and overseas sales, which require longer time for delivery.

Introduced at the same time is Odor LockTM, an innovative packaging that locks in strong aromas of food or fruits. It is made from a special type of plastics which prevents the smell of food, such as durian, chili paste, and salted fish, from seeping out. It is designed for consumers who want to keep strong-smelling food in the same package. Options include three-sided seal bags and pleated bags, made to be sealed easily with heat but also kept in cold storage or ice with no problems of leakage. They may be refrigerated without causing condensation within, therefore helping to preserve food flavors.

Both innovative packagings could solve problems and enhance usage for customers and consumers. By prolonging the freshness of fruits and vegetables and locking in food aromas, they respond to the needs of fruit and vegetable sellers, who will be able to deliver their produce to distant destinations and thus add value to their products.
