IoPP Mentor Match
March 13, 2018
The Food Safety Alliance for Packaging (FSAP), a technical committee of the Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP), announces the release of a product stewardship document for food packaging. The six-page document is titled “Food Packaging Product Stewardship Considerations.” This document is available at www.iopp.org/fsap.
The document is the product of an FSAP food brand owners working group. The participating companies aim to provide a list of product stewardship best practices in a publicly available document for all of the food packaging supply chain to access. For this document, input was given by brand owners including Nestlé and Mars Wrigley Confectionery, and packaging supply chain members including Decernis, Siegwerk, American Packaging Corp., Henkel and Sun Chemical.
Food companies and members of the packaging supply chain are welcome to use all or parts of this non-binding document as a roadmap for product stewardship considerations.
For questions, please contact Stephen Klump, the FSAP food company working group’s representative.
FSAP is a group of individuals from food and food packaging supply chain companies dedicated to raising food safety awareness in the food packaging industry. FSAP meets to discuss food packaging quality and safety topics during a bi-monthly call. In addition, there is a yearly face-to-face meeting.
FSAP is one of eight technical committees of IoPP, the largest individual-membership organization in North America serving the packaging industry’s education and networking needs, thereby helping professionals succeed.
