Recyclability is becoming ever more relevant for manufacturers. Consumers now demand sustainability in the products and packaging they buy. At the same time, governments are starting to address the problems of the linear economy, and this means food contact plastics will need to be reusable and recyclable, if we are to achieve a true circular economy.

However, some concerns had arisen relating to the use of post-consumer recycled (PCR) in FCM and articles, including contaminants from recycled plastics, the incorporation of non-food contact regulated PCR plastics and the non-compliance with food contact regulations of additives in recycled plastics.

In this webinar, our expert will provide an in-depth analysis on the impact of Regulation (EU) 2022/1616 on the industry and how SGS solutions can enhance the safety of recycled plastic materials to support manufacturers, brands, retailers and other stakeholders in delivering safe and compliant FCM products to target markets around the world.
