Nowadays, plastic materials have become one of the most widely used materials in all aspects of life, such as in automobiles, household appliances, computers and packaging materials. Because of the environmental issues caused by its disposal and incineration, biodegradable polymeric materials (or biopolymers) were recommended as an alternative to synthetic ones. Most of the disposed packaging come from food industry, especially from fresh and ready-to-eat food products, which are also characterized by high perishability. Meat and derived products represent such perishable food items with quick deterioration under improper storage. Many advances have occurred in the field of smart meat packaging; thus, the aim of this study was to review current advances in the development of novel packaging materials for fresh and processed meat, which are also in support of environmental sustainability.
