This paper described the fabrication of Chitosan (Cs) with starch for packaging application. The current plastic packaging is not environmental friendly. Thus, this experiment helps to overcome this problem by performing the production of Cs with starch for packaging application. This experiment had been conducted in order to fabricate the film by using casting technique and determine the analysis through Differential Scanning (DSC), Brookfield viscometer (RVT), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry (FTIR) and degradation. The optimum ratio for Cs-film fabrication is 1:50 due to the color, thickness and the appearance of the produced film. The result from the analysis shows that Cs with starch + Glycerol had been proving that it more degrade than Cs with starch + Ethylene Glycol. As a conclusion the Cs with starch has been successful fabricate for packaging application and the degradation process has completely occurred in all types of samples.
