Cartboard packaging for direct food contact
Food-safe packaging is of course important in the food industry. This is no different for folding cardboard, which is why all aspects that influence this aspect are taken into account in the development of this packaging. Packaging must meet many requirements in order to come into direct contact with food.
Both non-glued and glued boxes can be suitable for direct food contact (food grade). Some examples of food-safe packaging are: chocolate packaging (ballotins), tomato boxes (supermarket) and nested trays.
Altrif Label, in collaboration with St-Luc Labels & Packaging, has many years of experience in the food market. Through this experience we have all the knowledge about what a product must meet. As with other folding cardboard packaging, custom-made products are also provided here.
There is a lot to look at with food safety. For example, some packaging must be air-permeable (cheese packaging), and the odor or taste transfer of the packaging is obviously out of the question. Also inks in which the packaging is printed may not contaminate the product (migration). Many certificates and tests are required for each product. We do this in collaboration with an external laboratory for independent research, and our direct suppliers. This ensures that your safety is guaranteed.
