In a great example of packaging industry innovation, a team of students at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, one of the world’s leading science universities, has developed a new nano coating that will, they claim, allow every drop of ketchup to come out of the bottle.
The research into the coating, which has been named LiquiGlide, has been led by Professor Kripa Varanasi. It uses a low-friction material that is, according to reports, FDA approved and derived from plants.
Professor Varanasi said the coating could be on the market within two or three years and, beyond the condiments category, could be used in containers for shampoos and lotions.
So chip lovers rejoice hopefully in the future there will always be enough ketchup to go around.
