The food industry and their packaging engineers, designers, recyclers are striving to develop packaging that falls within the mandates of the circular economy and that which meet pledged sustainability targets.
Food-contact plastics are regulated in the U.S. by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In issuing the letters of no objection (LNO) to companies involved in recycling materials for use in food packaging, the FDA must be convinced that the materials are safe and suitable for food contact applications.
Apart from meeting the purity requirements of the FDA Act, recycled food contact materials must also comply with the FDA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) regulations.
Possibility of migration of chemical contaminants in the recycled material leaching into the food, microbial contamination, the structural integrity of the recycled packaging are all important considerations.
