The food packaging industry is facing increasing levels of regulatory and consumer scrutiny as new analytical methods and toxicological data become available.
WESTON™ 705 is approved for food contact in more than 50 countries in the world. It has been tested extensively to ensure compliance with the latest food contact requirements of the most demanding regulations in the world: WESTON™ 705 is approved for broad food contact by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the European Food Standards Agency (EFSA) and China National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC).
A full potential NIAS profile is available, with associated toxicological data, allowing resin manufacturers to perform the required safety assessment.
WESTON™ 705 is included on all current global chemical inventories.
While safety and environmental regulations have focused so far on the safety of the primary chemical materials used in packaging, brands and regulators are now increasingly focusing on Non-Intentionally Added Substances that can be generated during processing and that could subsist in the final packaging.
The NIAS profile of WESTON™ 705 has been thoroughly tested, providing unprecedented peace of mind.
