Pastes and Inks for Food Packaging (non-direct food contact)
For the formulation of inks for food packaging (non-DFC), ECKART has developed its trade name FPG (Food Packaging Grade). We provide printing ink solutions for offset, rotogravure and flexo printing that deliver maximum performance and quality while minimizing potential impact to the environment and human health.
As a member of the European Printing Ink Association (EuPIA), ECKART actively assisted in the creation of guidelines for consumer protection. We committed ourselves to the “EuPIA Guideline on Printing Inks applied to the non-food contact surface of food packaging materials and articles”. The guideline offers detailed formulation recommendations. It can be downloaded here: www.eupia.org
