Food Safe Packaging program launched to extend specialist’s knowledge to the market

Henkel has launched an initiative to increase knowledge of food safety in the packaging market.

The Food Safe Packaging program is focused around the www.henkel.com/foodsafety web portal, which provides various content, such as webinars, white papers and videos related to the topic of food safe packaging.

A glossary of terms is also available, with descriptions and information ranging from antioxidants to zinc.

In addition to the website, Henkel has also been present at numerous tradeshows and special food safety forums, where its representatives have been discussing the latest trends in adhesive development. Further forums are in the pipeline, such as Drinktec in Munich, Germany and Labelexpo Europe in Brussels, Belgium.

Interested parties can also register for a premium account, providing additional expert knowledge on key food safe packaging topics.

Further, Henkel said it is keen to promote information interchange and cooperation between all parties and partners involved in the food safe packaging value chain, and has established in-house teams for centralized analytics, toxicology and product development, and also a team of specialists to deal with regulatory issues.

The adhesive specialist said its products are used in a variety of food packaging applications, from cereal boxes to flexible packaging, and wants to use the initiative to extend the availability of its expertise in this segment.

The initiative is targeted at food safety officers, quality managers, packaging developers, purchasers and other interested parties in the food industry wishing to learn more about safe food packaging.

Harald Bartsch, who is responsible within Henkel’s packaging adhesives business unit for international digital marketing and marketing communications in Europe, said: ‘We regard ourselves as partners of food producers and packaging manufacturers, whom we are able to support with a wide range of solutions.’
