Products intended for food contact

Products intended for food contact

Paper and cardboard materials and articles that come into contact with food can affect the quality of the food. Paper products intended for direct or indirect contact with food must be sufficiently inert to prevent their components to migrate into food in quantities that could endanger health, cause changes in the composition of the food or deteriorate the organoleptic properties.

We provide comprehensive evaluation of the conformity of paper materials  for direct or indirect contact with food. Testing parameters are determined on the basis of legal requirements, recommendations of paper and paper industry, taking into account the purpose and nature of the packaged food.
