Lux-X has taken part in the conference «Packaging industry. Current development trends»
Food packaging is an essential element to protect food from spoilage. It must meet the requirements of safety, compatibility, environmental friendliness and reliability. Packaging preserves the quality, consumer properties of products and reduces losses during transportation and storage.
Materials used in the packaging production should not affect the product itself, giving the food abnormal smell, flavour or color. They should not evolve substances, exceeding the permissible migration levels, as well as compounds that can cause carcinogenic, mutagenic and other effects to the food product in contact with them.
Consolidated cooperation of food producers, packers and suppliers of consumables, in particular packaging adhesive, is very important. Adhesive for packaging food should not only be safe for human health, but should not exceed the permissible level of chemicals migration.
These and other problems were discussed on September 18-19, 2018 at the Scientific and Practical Conference «Packaging industry. Current development trends». The conference was organized by the Information and Analytical Center «Upakovka» in Odessa, where gathered more than 70 specialists from 44 companies.
