What Is Intelligent & Smart Packaging?

Intelligent or smart packaging can be defined as a pack which incorporates a disposable device which interacts with the consumer or its environment. There are a vast number of technologies and applications within this remit, but this conference programme focuses on the most important and significant ones likely to radically change brand management and the supply chain during the next ten years.


Major influencing technologies include:

  • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
  • Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS)
  • Smart Inks and Diagnostics
  • Polymer and other Laminar Electronics e.g. the transparent electronic package

Significant packaging applications include:

  • Supply chain tagging including for tracking, tracing and control
  • Time–temperature indicators for demonstrating freshness, doneness, product integrity, quality and safety etc.

  • Fun and information features such as sound and image interactivity to enhance brand packaging and point of sale

  • Consumer interactivity and error prevention – dosage and compliance devices, refrigerator reordering, auto cooking in the microwave, disposable timers on hair dye etc.

  • Anti-theft and stock control benefits within the supply chain

  • Interactive security and anti-counterfeiting devices
