Intertek Addresses the Safe Use of Printing Inks

October 05, 2018

Join us at PLASTICS Fall Food Packaging Summit | November 14-16, 2018, Delray Beach, FL

The use of inks and fluids is a key consideration for food brands and corrugated packaging converters in all stages of the supply chain. No longer only functional and informative, digitally printed corrugated packaging has become graphically rich, serving as a marketing tool. The digital printing ink and solutions industry is faced with numerous challenges and opportunities in innovation, design, sustainability, and regulatory compliance, particularly as it pertains to food contact materials.

Naeem Mady, Vice President, Regulatory Market Access at Intertek states, “In response to the needs of the printing and inks industry, Intertek has developed guidelines to clearly outline the requirements for food-safe digital printing inks in corrugated packaging". Health, Environmental & Regulatory Services (HERS) expert, Nicholas Jermstad, Senior Manager, Toxicology & Environmental Assessments, will present on "Guidelines for Safe Use of Printing Inks" on November 15th from 12:05pm-12:35pm. His presentation will provide attendees with a resource where clear and consolidated compliance guidance is currently unavailable.

Registrants are encouraged to stop by at the Intertek booth to discuss their company's specific requirements. We provide comprehensive industry leading packaging solutions through our Assurance, Testing, Inspection, and Certification services to industries ranging from food contact, polymers & plastics, industrial & consumer products, cosmetics, medical, agricultural, pharmaceutical, and more.

This year's Food Packaging Summit will discuss the latest developments in food packaging regulation from the 1958 Food Additives Amendment to the current year. Presenters from the U.S. FDA and industry will offer their insight into the progression and foundation of FDA's system for regulating food contact materials.
