Consumers are becoming more conscious about chemicals in food and food packaging. This has had a big influence on the market. Several substances have come under pressure and industry is working together to develop a common approach. Growing awareness within the market has also been observed globally, particularly in China, where FEICA is actively advocating on the new legislation for adhesives in food packaging to support members and downstream users who sell into this market. In this presentation, Elke will explore industry initiatives on cyclic esters, dioxane and Glymo, and examine the Chinese standard for adhesives for food packaging.
