This webinar addresses new test methods for quantifying migration of Printing inks on food packaging materials into the packaged food and how they affect food safety law compliance.

Why Should You Attend:

Packaged food worth millions of Euros has been recalled in Europe over the past four years as a result of the transfer of printing ink chemicals from the printed layer of packaging material into the packaged product. EU authorities have responded with new regulations and procedures intended to prevent such contamination. The US is likely to follow.

In the US, users and producers of food packaging are responsible for insuring that no chemicals from printing inks migrate into the packaged product. With basic testing protocols for demonstrating that chemicals from these inks do not migrate into packaged food now established through this European initiative, food packages must deal with a new scientific standard for meeting their no-migrate standard.

This webinar will present the methods and guidelines for surrogate food simulants in force now in Europe, with an eye towards their use in compliance with US food safety law.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • Food processing facility inspections.
  • Indirect food additives.
  • Migration into food.
  • Migration testing and modeling.
  • Food simulants for migration experiments.
  • Packaging material traceability.
  • Product recall response.
  • Good manufacturing practices.
  • Surface-print ink offset mechanisms.

Who Will Benefit:

  • Personnel responsible for HACCP, food safety procedures, FDA compliance, product traceability and safety audits at food processing facilities
  • Members of the Institute of Food Technologists and American Society for Quality involved in food safety and quality assurance
  • Packaging engineers at companies using or supplying food packaging material
