Chemicals in food contact materials

How do you manage the risks of chemicals in your food contact materials?

Monitor every regulatory development affecting food contact materials

The packaging of food is crucial to its safe and effective delivery from farm and factory to fork. But the food contact materials (FCM) used and their composition have, in recent years, become an increasing source of concern, not least because products such as cookware and food packaging can contain types of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs).

These concerns have led to a flurry of regulatory action, much of it piecemeal and some overarching. At Enhesa Product we have extensive experience in monitoring FCM regulatory developments across jurisdictions, keeping product safety and compliance professionals up to date.
