I think the future of food sales will be fresh, natural foods grown locally, not bought when they are green, shipped 1000 miles and ripened in industrial closets.

I think packaging will just have to reflect that. I work with many interesting combinations of polymers for food packaging that are capable of locking in freshness and providing that locally grown appeal.
