Manufacturers and materials processors

As manufacturers, or processors of materials and packaging intended for food contact, you have statutory obligations. Verification of the inertness of materials is necessary so as:

  • Not to affect the health of the final consumer, and to ensure food safety
  • To conform with legislation when you sell your product (the manufacturer as well the importer are legally equally responsible for the putting of the product on the market, and its fitness for contact with foodstuffs, medicines or cosmetics).
  • To be sure that the raw materials that you use in production are equally suitable for such contact.


You are confronted with a multiplicity of materials and new requirements: constraints linked to new production technologies and the acceleration in the speed of production, fitness for varying uses, hygiene and processing best practices.
Do not hesitate to contact us in order to benefit from our expertise.

“Is my packaging inert?”

“Does it conform to requirements?”

“Is the consumer exposed to a risk?”

Here are several questions which are regularly asked by our clients, who appreciate having direct contact with their account manager to advise them.
