Consumer demand for convenience has driven innovation in food packaging in recent years. However, equally important to consumers is reassurance that the food they purchase is safe, free from contamination by natural occurrences, as well as by packaging materials. That responsibility lies with everyone in the supply chain.
The challenge is that, as an unregulated substance group in Europe, adhesives are difficult to evaluate. We invite you to connect with two H.B. Fuller specialists who can help you make the right decision and ensure food safety compliance.
On Tuesday, May 6, 16:00 CET, Alexandra Ross, product regulatory specialist, and Elizabeth Staab, marketing manager, packaging solutions, will host a webinar: Ensuring Food Safety – how to address adhesives used in food contact packaging. Learn more about our speakers and register today for this FREE webinar.
Our experts will examine the role of current legislation, providing insight about how the guidance from the Association of European Adhesives and Sealants Industry (FEICA) helps both the adhesive manufacturer and user. Alexandra and Elizabeth will review the step-by-step raw material and adhesive evaluation process, which ensures adhesives used for food packaging are safe. They will also explain what information needs to be provided on a food contact status paper, so that adequate data is communicated up the supply chain.
H.B. Fuller is proud to be an active player in the development and application of the Guidance of Food Contact Status Declaration for Adhesives, and we look forward to sharing our insights with you.
The issue of food safety requires collaboration throughout the supply chain. At H.B. Fuller, we are committed to connecting what matters, bringing together people, processes and products that answer and solve customer challenges.
