UPM Raflatac – safe labeling solutions for food packaging

Consumer safety is of utmost importance to us. With this in mind, we decided to take good manufacturing practices (GMP) to the next level.

UPM Raflatac is the first self-adhesive laminate supplier to have all factories in Europe certified according to the ISO 22000:2005 food safety standard. This certificate ensures that the products are designed and manufactured according to the European Good Manufacturing Practice Regulation (GMP), EU 2023/2006. The management systems are certified and regularly audited by a third-party auditing company and confirm our continuous effort to build a food safety culture into the DNA of our operations. Read more about our certificates.

We also constantly follow the European legislation for food safety to make sure our label material range for food is compliant within the intended use. Read more about our food safety policy.

Your role in food safety

Consumers expect that food packaging is safe. It is the duty of each business operator in the packaging supply chain to secure on their behalf that the safety of the packaging materials are evaluated and that information about the intended use of the material is supplied to the next business operator. Brand owners and packers have the responsibility to assess the safety of the final packaging application. They know the packed food – its nature, quantity, storage time and temperature. They also know the size of the label as well as other materials involved, like printing inks, for example.

With so many requirements it can be hard to keep up, but there are some basic steps to choosing legally compliant, food safe label materials:

  1. For a new or changed packaging application, consider the safety assessment before the application is realized.
  2. Ask for Declarations of Compliance (DoCs) from your label material vendor and make sure they are comprehensive.
  3. Make sure your label material vendor can demonstrate Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) in the food supply chain and can prove compliance with the relevant legislation. Requesting a ISO 22000 certified food safety management system you can simplify your purchasing process as you don‘t need to separately check how GMP compliance is met.
