MMK develops protection against migration of mineral oils into foodstuff.

Consumer health and safety is the top priority for the European Paper and carton board Industry as well as respecting sustainability and the ecological goal of a recycling economy. The most recent challenges concentrated on preventing newly detected migration of mineral oils from newspaper- and packaging printing inks into carton board packed foodstuff. The industry along with its partners in the supply chain has made all efforts to find solutions to this issue. The breakthrough has been achieved.

Mayr-Melnhof Karton has developed with “FOODBOARD™”, an innovative barrier applied on the reverse side of the board, stopping migration of mineral oils into foodstuff. The positive results have been successfully implemented in first industrial production runs.

The board innovation and the carefully, selected barrier substance, guarantee both food safety as well as a sustainable, environmentally responsible recycled paper- based packaging industry.
