Standard For Food Contact Materials

Food contact materials refer to the packaging materials, containers, detergents, disinfectants and the tools and equipment used for food production and operation. On the one hand, food contact materials for packaging food, can prevent food due to air, light, microbes and other effects of deterioration; the other hand, due to direct contact with food, food contact materials chemical composition may be directly moved to food or Food composition of chemical reactions, causing food quality decline or food safety issues. Food 580 collected a variety of relevant standards for your reference.
