core tip: on November 22, China's tableware disinfection industry had a new measure - "facing today's litigation, civilized tableware disinfection industry 1122 self regulatory standard" was released. Compared with the hygienic standard for disinfection of food (drinking) utensils (GB) issued by the state in 1994, it can be effectively rectified by adding "the packaging film shall not be printed, the tableware shall be packaged with white film, and the finished products shall be labeled after packaging", so as to prevent the packaging film from polluting the cleaned tableware after printing. This is the concern of the society, especially the catering industry, about the potential safety hazards related to food safety packaging and printing processing after the packaging and printing industry was included in the scope of air pollution prevention and control by nine departments and Beijing issued five local air pollution emission standards

[China Packaging News] on November 22, China's tableware disinfection industry took new measures, and the 1122 self regulatory standard for tableware disinfection industry was released. Compared with the hygienic standard for disinfection of food (drinking) utensils (GB) issued by the state in 1994, the packaging film shall not be printed, the tableware shall be packaged with white film, and the finished products shall be labeled after packaging, so as to prevent the packaging film from polluting the cleaned tableware after printing. This is the concern of the society, especially the catering industry, about the potential safety hazards related to food safety packaging and printing processing after the packaging and printing industry was included in the scope of air pollution prevention and control by nine departments and Beijing issued five local air pollution emission standards

as a printing and packaging practitioner, how to deal with this adverse impact and strive to improve the safety of food packaging? It is the most basic work to adhere to and strictly implement the relevant national laws and regulations on food safety as the standard to guide daily operations and the bottom line of production. Self discipline, self inspection and self-examination can ensure the quality and safety of products in contact with food. For example, national mandatory standards such as the general rules for the labeling of prepackaged food (GB), the general rules for the nutrition labeling of prepackaged food (GB) and the hygienic standard for composite food packaging bags (GB) shall be strictly implemented

check from the source

in fact, it is the choice of raw and auxiliary materials that plays a key role in the printing safety of food packaging. Without green and qualified materials, to ensure the safety of food packaging and printing is to spend money in the water and in the mirror. Therefore, we need to start from the source and strictly check

domestic requirements for paper used for direct contact between food and human body do not allow manual addition of fluorescent brighteners, and PVC is not allowed to be used as plastic packaging material for food. Enterprises should strictly follow this, and other materials cannot contain PVC. For the selection of printing ink, enterprises should strictly control the pollution of printing ink on food packaging and contents. Generally, ink pollution mainly comes from the migration of toxic and harmful substances left inside the ink. Therefore, environmental friendly water-based ink production should be selected when the printing process permits. For example, the offset printing process can choose vegetable soybean oil to replace mineral oil as the ink produced by the binder, and meet the technical requirements of environmental labeling products of offset printing ink. At the same time, we should also avoid the use of solvent based adhesives, control the content of phthalates in raw and auxiliary materials such as ink, glazing oil, rubber blanket and adhesive, do not actively add methanol and cyclohexanone substances in the production of wetting solution, do not use solvent based glazing paint, and use environmental protection water-based glazing paint. In one year, it will cost more than 4 billion yuan to produce

in addition, industry associations or competent departments can also establish online trading platforms for raw and auxiliary materials of food packaging and printing, establish mechanisms for integrity, reporting and blacklist publicity, and submit them to the joint supervision of the whole society, which will provide great convenience for enterprises engaged in food packaging and printing to purchase raw and auxiliary materials

implement according to standards

in the whole printing industry, the concept of green printing and cleaner production has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and led the whole industry to develop in the direction of green and environmental protection. At present, a number of green printing standard systems are under construction, among which the "green printing product evaluation criteria Part 2 packaging products" standard, which is in the process of formulation, is closely related to the printing safety of food packaging. Adjust the printing industrial structure in the way of green printing, lead the transformation and upgrading of enterprises, achieve the purpose of encouraging the advanced and eliminating the backward, the survival of the fittest, and naturally eliminate the backward production capacity in the packaging and printing industry by means of marketization, which will change the current situation of excessive competition and disorderly development of the whole printing and packaging industry

with the formulation, promulgation, publicity and implementation of green printing standards, it is believed that the whole printing and packaging industry will make solid progress towards the development direction of green environmental protection, cleaner production, low-carbon economy, energy conservation and emission reduction, and people-oriented
