Amorim Cork Composites develops a product suitable for the food industry
Aware of the need to permanently update itself, Amorim Cork Composites is now launching a line of “Food Contact” materials, consisting of products suitable for being in contact with food. These solutions, made of cork, a 100% natural and recyclable resource, are the answer to an ever more demanding market, in terms of aspects such as environmental sustainability and public health.
The secret involves integrating a new technology into cork, thus ensuring total safety for any food that is in direct or indirect contact with the product and, naturally, for the consumer as well. This allows providing a natural and effective alternative while ensuring compliance with the regulations set out in European (Regulation 10/2011 of the European Union) and German (LFGB) standards. Cork is the obvious choice when the aim is using an ecological, sustainable and easily processable material, as the machining and manufacturing processes involved (such as lamination, cutting, creasing and printing) are quicker and more cost-effective.
