To ensure that you are following good food packaging policies, it is essential that you always keep the following in mind.
- Always purchase your food packaging from a trusted and reputable food packaging company.
- Always use clean, undamaged and food-safe packaging. You must never use packaging that was intended for another use.

What are food packaging safety standards?
Food packaging safety standards require that food packaging is only used for its intended purposes and that the material used cannot change the risk of contamination. These safety standards are important as inferior food packaging can potentially cause the following:
– Chemicals can leak from the packaging into food which can be deadly
– Bacteria and harmful microorganisms can get into food through dirty, damaged or contaminated packaging
– Inferior quality packaging can break off into the food and be consumed unknowingly which is a serious health hazard
Food packaging safety standards are designed to ensure that any risk to the consumer is minimised as much as possible. By following food packaging safety standards and ensuring that our packaging is of a high quality and produced in a clean environment, we can help to ensure that our food packaging is safe for everyone to use.
