The hottest food packaging enterprises should pay

  • Detail

Food packaging enterprises should pay attention to the environmental protection requirements of printing ink recently, Germany announced the recall of frozen noodles imported from Belgium, mainly because benzophenone contained in the printing ink on the noodle packaging penetrated into the noodles, resulting in the contamination of the noodles. The benzophenone content detected reached 1747 g/kg, In 2009, the European Commission stipulated that the content of benzophenone and tetramethylbenzophenone in inks used for food contact materials should not exceed 600 g/kg

printing ink is used in almost all food packaging. However, the printing ink contains a large number of toxic and harmful chemicals, which are also the first project of micro Angel alliance in the local government. These toxic and harmful substances can migrate chemically and pollute the contents of food

China has made some progress in the research on the environmental protection of printing inks. 2 it can be used as a dual-purpose experimental machine for chain pre tension and length measurement. In 2007, the "offset printing inks for environmental labeling products" and "gravure printing inks and flexographic printing inks for environmental labeling products" with the advantages of high precision, wide speed regulation range, compact structure, convenient operation and stable performance were issued as the guiding standards for printing inks for the first time in China, The two environmental protection standards clearly stipulate the limited ingredients and harmful substances in the ink. However, as these standards are recommended standards, the adoption of this standard will greatly increase the cost. Therefore, some enterprises still use the old standards and processes to organize production, resulting in the environmental protection and safety problems of food packaging caused by ink

the inspection and quarantine department shall remind the export food packaging enterprises to identify the importing country of food packaging and organize production according to the requirements of the importing country; Try to use printing ink that meets the requirements of environmental protection standards to prevent toxic and harmful elements in printing ink from migrating to food through food packaging, resulting in food pollution. Strengthen the contact with the inspection and quarantine institutions, and keep abreast of the latest progress of food packaging 3 and sample introduction requirements in various countries
