Edible packaging is a massive trend product which production will influence new perceptions about packaging. There has not been much research on consumers’ perceptions of edible films, so it is necessary to determine the acceptance. Chili powder packaging is one of the edible film applications in the food industry. Edible packaging applications replacing chili powder plastic packaging can reduce plastic consumption, increase the feasibility and maintain chili powder quality. However, certain materials utilization can affect the perception, such as gelatin. Unsavory perception about gelatin edible packaging, such as its halal legality, will detain its production and development. Thus, this research aimed to analyze consumers’ perception of edible packaging made of gelatin as chili powder packaging. This research was conducted using a survey method by Google Forms questionnaire working 215 respondents and organoleptic preference test employing randomly selected 101 untrained panelists. Based on observations, most respondents have positive knowledge and perception about edible packaging made of gelatin as chili powder packaging. The panelists accepted the product color, viscosity, aroma, and taste, respectively 87%, 77%, 72%, and 69%. Taken together, the findings highlight the perception and acceptance of gelatin edible packaging to replace chilli powder undegradable packaging.
