Suggestions and measures for safety management of food packaging materials in China
Due to the increasingly serious environmental pollution caused by petroleum-based food packaging materials and the increasingly prominent food safety issues, the development of new food packaging has become a strategic choice for the food industry in various countries. Promoting active food packaging, edible and fully degradable food packaging is of great significance for improving the safety of food packaging materials in China and ensuring food safety.
First of all, in order to improve the safety level of China's food packaging materials as a whole, it is necessary to adjust the industrial structure, increase production concentration, promote professional serialization, and improve product quality and safety.
Secondly, it is necessary to improve the testing methods and standards for food packaging materials, and promote the development of safe food packaging materials, including the replacement of restricted or suspicious materials with safe materials (such as polyethylene terephthalate instead of poly Vinyl chloride, polypropylene instead of polystyrene), development of functional packaging materials without special equipment and technical support for food packaging, development of packaging materials with special functions (high barrier properties, formability); development of green packaging materials and application.
Third, we must strengthen the research and development of food packaging materials production technology and technology, improve the process safety level, carry out research on key technologies of green packaging machinery design, reduce the use of additives and unsafe raw materials, and accelerate the research and development of ink packaging professional ink and special printing technology. Control the risk of entry of hazardous materials in the production of packaging materials.
