  • "At a list price of $135, the book is a steal, a fraction of the cost to attend one food science or food packaging conference. It will yield much food for thought that you can keep shelved nearby and reference as needed. For food packaging science, this book is a smorgasbord that will keep you content with its detailed content." - Rick Lingle for PACKAGING WORLD (2006)
