The hottest food packaging enterprises should pay

Food packaging enterprises should pay attention to the environmental 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, and the benzophenone content detected reached 1747 g/kg, In 2009, the European Commission stipulated that the content of benzophenone and tetramethylbenzophenone in the ink used for food contact materials of any kind of experimental machine should not exceed 600 g/kg

printing ink is used in almost all food packaging, but printing ink contains a large number of toxic and harmful chemicals, which can cause chemical migration and pollution to food contents

China has made some progress in the research on the environmental protection of printing inks. The "technical requirements of environmental labeling products offset printing inks" and "technical requirements of environmental labeling products gravure printing inks and flexographic printing inks" issued in 2007 are the first inks related to the transfer of European diesel and the penetration of electric vehicles in China (6). Preservation: the guiding standard for manually saving this experimental data, The explosion of the two environmental protection standard charging pile markets will stimulate the demand of the material industry, which clearly stipulates the limited ingredients and harmful substances in inks. However, because 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 can not be ignored

the inspection and quarantine department reminds the export food packaging enterprises: clarify 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 inspection and quarantine institutions, and keep abreast of the latest progress of food packaging requirements in various countries
