The worldwide food contact polymers market has seen enormous change in recent years, a trend in part due to the shifting regulatory landscape. It is important, perhaps now more than ever, to keep abreast of regulatory matters and to identify the provisions that are legally necessary.

With these challenges in mind, Food Contact Polymers, 2009 brought together partners from the food processing and packaging supply chain. New materials and innovations in food manufacturing processes and packaging were discussed in detail. Material selection, testing and the all important legislation applicable to all types of food contact materials was also covered.
