Are you mindful of Food Contact Materials?

Food Contact Materials (FCMs) encompass anything from kitchen utensils, tableware and preparation surfaces to packaging, factory machinery and more. The increasing focus on food safety around the world has brought this potential area of contamination into the spotlight, but the speed of change and the scope of FCMs makes it a challenging area of risk management, control and regulation.

Dr. Ehrenstorfer has teamed up with expert John Points to provide you with our latest whitepaper Food Contact Mindfulness to help you make sense of the definitions of FCMs. We include examples of the approaches to risk management and analysis of the main subcategories of FCMs, including bisphenol A (BPA); per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS); phthalates; mineral oil hydrocarbons (MOHs); and photoinitiators.
