Global Food Contact Paper Market: Introduction

Food or edibles, during processing, production, preparation, storing, serving and eventual consumption comes in contact with many articles and materials. These materials, which come in contact with food or other edibles are known as Food Contact Materials (FCMs). These materials are either in contact or intended to be brought in contact with the food without transferring their constituents into the food. Owing to their inertness, these materials do not influence the quality of food or adversely affect consumer’s health. A lot of regulations are laid for free movement and safety of FCMs, for example, in EU there are laws which businesses must comply with. Similarly, other agencies like the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department  in Hong Kong, Food Safety and Standards Authority of India in India and Food Standards Agency in U.K. are responsible for food safety in their respective countries. In the U.S., at the federal level, Food and Drug Administration publishes the food code while other agencies at state level have their own responsibilities.
