Chair of the FEICA Paper & Packaging Technical Working Group
Food packaging adhesives within a changing regulatory landscape | Mineral oil and other challenges
The European Commission has been evaluating existing food contact material legislation and will continue its assessment for the first part of 2017 possibly resulting in a review of relevant legislation or additional measures. Pressure on adhesives for food packaging is rising as regulators and NGOs cite adhesives as possible source of contamination in food. The FEICA Paper and Packaging Technical Working Group is committed to building scientific arguments and methods on how to evaluate the food contact status of adhesives in order to protect the consumer and build trust with all relevant stakeholders.
