Food Contact Guidelines for the Compliance of Paper and Board Materials and Articles now out

The paper and board manufacturing industry, as well as converting sectors including the tissue industry publish today the completely rewritten voluntary ‘Food Contact Guidelines for the Compliance of Paper and Board Materials and Articles’. Formally called “Industry Guideline”, the revised guidelines are intended to enhance the trust of public authorities, business operators and consumers in the safety of paper and board materials for food contact applications. You can consult them here and watch the explanatory video:

 

      

 

This technical document, first published in 2010 and already updated once in 2012, outlines how to meet the highest safety standards for paper and board products used in food contact applications.

Full guidelines can be downloaded below.

For more information about the document, please contact Jori Ringman, CEPI Deputy Director General, at j.ringman@cepi.org or at (+32) 2 627 49 19.

Preliminary Statistics 2018

Paper and board production stable and market pulp production up in 2018 compared to 2017

CEPI member countries’ paper and board production was stable in 2018, compared to the previous year, according to preliminary figures. Total production in 2018 reached 92.2 million tonnes. 2018 saw new capacities coming on stream but also closures. Combined with the upgrade of existing machines, this translated in a net capacity increase of 1.3 million tonnes.

The production stability observed in Europe contrasts with the reduced global paper and board production 0.6% in 2018 compared to 2017, to 417 million tonnes according to very first estimates. This reduction was mainly driven by China, whose production decreased by close to 4%. Paper and board production in Japan, South Korea and the United States has also declined, whilst production in Canada, Russia and several emerging countries (India, Indonesia and Mexico, for instance) increased.
