The aim of the MEATCOAT project is the development of a new bio-based antimicrobial edible coating for meat packaging that can improve the integrity and safety of fresh products and replace part of the less efficient and recyclable plastic packaging used today. Moreover, the developed coating will be able to increase shelf‐life of fresh meat and meat products due to its antimicrobial behaviour. The creation of a protective skin film barrier on the food surface will slow down the oxidation processes and will avoid the bacterial growth in the meat surface, enabling an enhanced preservation and quality of the food and safety in the consumer. This edible film will be developed from selected natural compounds which constitute an inexpensive and reliable source of raw material for the formulation of edible coatings.
