Content

Ensuring food contact conformity of packaging is a permanent challenge for packaging and food producers. New issues are currently being discussed concerning e.g. non intentionally added substances (NIAS), nanoparticles, mineral oil components or components from adhesives. The session will give an update on methodologies and present examples for current findings on these subjects.
