Why food safety is critical for carton and corrugated inkjet machines

This white paper is aimed to provide guidance for carton and corrugated producers considering an investment in inkjet.

Smithers is a provider of information on packaging supply chains, and provides a broad range of support and analytical testing services for packaging providers and users, including food contact testing and training. Smithers provides testing to help companies with assessment or to prove food contact regulation compliance. Alistair Irvine, Senior Manager of the Food Contact Testing group within Smithers comments: “Food safety is a critical part of the go-to-market strategy for Brands and Retailers, as they compete to win the loyalty of consumers demanding total safety for their families in the food they consume. Providing suitable food contact inks and coatings is critical for suppliers of new inkjet printing systems for cartons and corrugated because food makes up the majority of all printed packaging. Smithers provides independent advice and consultancy, as well as the laboratory assessment of printed samples.”
