Taking responsibility seriously

The safety of foodstuffs in packaging printing has become increasingly important. There are many regulations, guidelines and norms to be considered in this context. For example, raw materials must fulfil defined purity criteria. You have to ensure conformity with migration limits. Production has to comply with good manufacturing practice. Last but not least, quality assurance and quality control systems must be established.

With FoodSafe, we focus on the highest security level and offer our customers both tested and certified coating quality
