Food Packaging Industry

It is known that the safety of packaging material in contact with food throughout the food chain is an essential part of ensuring consumer safety.

Specific certification rules for manufacturers of food packaging include elements such as safety, quality and compliance to legal requirements.

These requirements can be met by improved hygiene, good manufacturing practice and controlling and monitoring potential contamination risks.

Packaging is defined as materials and articles which are in contact with foodstuff.

To meet the need for certification, GFSI has approved the FSSC 22000 Packaging standard as a further standard in addition to the well-known standard BRC-IOP / BRC Packaging. FSSC22000 packaging is based on ISO 22000 as the main standard and the specific ISO TS 22002-4 standard.
