Irplast's food contact tape

The production of IRPLAST’S FOOD CONTACT TAPE is carried out under the European Parliament and the Council on food packaging safety Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 and under the Commission’s Regulation (EC) No 2023/2006 on the suitable manufacturing process of materials and items destined to come into contact with food products.
This tape has been declared eligible for direct contact with fruit and vegetables with peel, following a meticulous analysis carried out by the commissioned laboratory CSI S.p.A from Bollate (Milan).
The inks used for the creation of IRPLAST’S FOOD CONTACT TAPE are all formulated in accordance with EuPIA CEPE Exclusion List and the adhesive part is formulated exclusively with the raw materials included in the XIV BfR recommendation.
It is an ideal alternative not only to straps and elastic bands, but also to trays and transparent wraps, safeguarding all the food’s organoleptic properties and significantly decreasing the quantity of secondary packaging. 
Irplast adopted the BRC/IOP (British Retail Consortium) standard also for the production process of its prevalent packaging tapes.
