If you are attending the Best of Food and Beverage Packaging Conference in Minneapolis, April 29 - May 1, I invite you to attend the session on “Packaging and the Legislative Landscape – Keeping Food Safe” to hear about how the packaging, food and beverage industries and government can work together on this critical issue.
At H.B. Fuller we go to great lengths to understand our customers’ evolving needs and challenges. For food and beverage brand owners and suppliers, one of those challenges today is meeting lengthy and complicated food contact regulations.
Consumer demand for convenience has driven innovation in food packaging. However, equally important to consumers is reassurance that the food they purchase is safe, free from contamination by natural occurrences as well as by packaging materials. That responsibility lies with everyone in the supply chain.
Food packaging adhesives can be especially difficult to evaluate. During my breakout session, I will discuss:
As global regulatory and analytical manager, over my eight-year career at H.B. Fuller I have collaborated on multiple projects with customers to develop and analytically test adhesives to determine compliance with various global food packaging regulations, and I look forward to sharing what I’ve learned with you.
The issue of food safety requires collaboration throughout the supply chain. At H.B. Fuller, we are committed to connecting what matters by bringing together people, processes and products that answer and solve customer challenges.
