The Food Safety Alliance for Packaging (FSAP), a technical committee of the Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP), has released a product stewardship document for food packaging. The product of an FSAP food brand owners working group, participating companies aim to provide a list of best practices for all of the food packaging supply chain to access.
For this document, input was given by brand owners including Nestlé and Mars Wrigley Confectionery, and packaging supply chain members including Decernis, Siegwerk, American Packaging Corp., Henkel and Sun Chemical.
Food companies and members of the packaging supply chain are welcome to use all or parts of this non-binding document as a roadmap for product stewardship considerations. This document is available at iopp.org/fsap.
FSAP is a group of individuals from food and food packaging supply chain companies dedicated to raising food safety awareness in the food packaging industry. FSAP meets to discuss food packaging quality and safety topics during a bi-monthly call. In addition, there is a yearly face-to-face meeting.
