Whether you are dining at home, at work, or at a restaurant, food containers are an inevitable part of our daily meals. As plastic is one of the most common materials for food containers, it is essential to ensure that the containers we use to store our food are safe and toxic free.
A general agreement all around the world is that food containers must not change the food they are in contact with or endanger human health.
Globally, different markets maintain their own sets of requirements on food containers. These requirements are being updated in various countries regularly to ensure consumer safety, and it is of the highest priority for manufacturers and retailers to stay compliant for related regulations before entering their target markets.
In this webinar, we will have an overview of the regulations for plastic food containers in the U.S. and the EU and help you understand your journey to achieve product compliance.
