Plastics food packaging converters gain assurance on new regulatory compliance with updated polyolefins test information from SABIC
Companies in the food packaging chain using polyolefins (polyethylenes and polypropylenes) can now access SABICís new food safety and compliance declarations. SABIC is one of the first producers of plastics to the European food industry to have all its food contact declarations updated in line with changes to European Union regulations, three years ahead of the required 2016 deadline. These changes are intended to further increase the safety of packaged foods. SABIC has been required to retest all its polyolefins packaging materials to make sure they are compliant with the new testing conditions.
