Let Us Be Your Guide
All major brand owners are transitioning away from the intentional use of PFAS in their food packaging due to existing and upcoming legislation banning the intentional use of these materials in the manufacturing of food packaging.
Knowing this, Emmerson Packaging has updated our processes to be compliant with existing PFAS regulations, enabling brand owners to confidently bring their products to market.
What is PFAS?
PFAS (perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are a group of human-made chemicals that have been widely used in various industries, including food packaging. These chemicals provide water and oil-repellency, stain resistance, and durability.
Why is PFAS being banned?
PFAS persists in the environment and within the human body which is why state governments are taking legislative and regulatory action to phase out the intentional use of PFAS in food packaging.
How can I learn more about this change and its impacts?
Emmerson Packaging has taken action to ensure that all of our products comply with existing PFAS legislations and are ready to help brand owners confidently take their products to market.
