Abstract: The reckless use of plastic is becoming a major threat to the environment. Therefore, reduction of plastic pollution is becoming a primary priority of every nation around the globe. Scientific community across the world has been searching for an alternative to plastic for many years. Food industry globally contributes a major share of the total plastic waste produced. Use of biodegradable and edible films is an alternate for many of the existing use of plastic packages in food and allied industry. Although it is not sufficient to completely curb the problem, may be able to play an important role in plastic pollution. More focus on edible and biodegradable packaging research is the need of the hour to make them a complete alternative for plastic packaging.
