Be prepared to meet changing global food safety requirements

Global food safety regulation is becoming increasingly complex. For the packaging industry, this means that the assurance of their food safety measures meeting the necessary requirements will continue to be a key challenge in 2019. As a market leader for high-impact adhesive solutions for the packaging industry, Henkel is committed to sharing its knowledge of the broad and complex field of food safe packaging with its industry partners.

This is why Henkel’s senior experts in food safe packaging will be hosting a range of dedicated webinars on this topic over the course of the year. These webinars will provide valuable insights into regulation topics such as “Fundamentals of global legislation for adhesives in food contact”. As mineral oils continue to dominate the industry discussion – particularly in Europe – Henkel will again offer a webinar on “Mineral oil components in food packaging – What you need to know about adhesives”. Analytics and testing will be covered in online seminars such as “Basics in migration analytics – Adhesives in food packaging”, “Practical migration testing of laminating adhesives”, and “Advanced migration testing for food safe packaging solutions”.

The webinar series will start on March 13 and will be held in English. The webinar on mineral oil components will also be offered in a German version on October 9. Henkel provides the complete webinar calendar with details on dates, courses, and registration here: www.packaging.henkel-adhesives.com/webinars.

“Globally, the legal framework for food safety regulation is constantly changing. This is why the industry’s need for information and the sharing of up-to-date knowledge is at an all-time high,” explains Dr. Monika Tönnießen, Manager Product Safety and Regulatory Affairs at Henkel. “Our webinars are directed at all industry members involved in the food packaging value chain, such as converters, brand owners, and retailers.” The webinars offered reflect Henkel’s commitment to broaden communication on food safe packaging and to bring together a wider range of professionals active in this field – from experts such as packaging developers, laboratory workers, and food safety managers to generalists such as plant managers. Participation in the webinars is free of charge for Henkel partners and customers in the industry.

The webinars are a key element in the company’s Food Safe Packaging Initiative (www.henkel.com/foodsafety).
