The interaction between food and packaging was unacceptable in the past. It was believed to be altered the food quality. However, numerous literatures have proven that the specific interactions between food and packaging do not affect the quality of the food and it can also slow down the deterioration of food. Antimicrobial packaging technology is one of the concepts that induce interactions between food and packaging while maintaining the food properties, safety and nutritional quality. Generally, the additives used as an antimicrobial agent are essential oils, which extracted from plants. These essential oils are able to inhibit the growth of fungus, yeast, bacteria, food spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms. Bioplastics is expected to replace plastics from petroleum in the near future. Commercially, bioplastics were used for the food packaging applications due to their good mechanical properties and biodegradability. To reduce the plastic wastes together with the shelf life extension of food, many researchers have developed antimicrobial bioplastic packaging in the past decade. This article discusses the introduction to bioplastics, deterioration of food due to microorganisms, migration of antimicrobial agents from packaging to food as well as the antimicrobial packaging technology with various foods.
