Food Contact Materials

Food contact materials (FCMs) are materials that are intended to be in contact with food. These can be things that are quite obvious like a glass, a can for soft drinks, but also machinery in a food factory or a coffee machine.

Food contact materials can be constructed from a variety of materials like plastics, rubber, paper, coatings, metal, ink, etc. In many cases a combination is used; for example a carton box for juices can include (from the inside to the outside): plastic layer, aluminium, paper, printing and surface coating.

Cookware/ Bakeware: baking cups, pans, pots, trays, tea kettles, etc.

Tableware: cutlery, drinking equipment, plates, glassware, ceramicware, etc.

Juvenile Products: cutlery sets and feeding /drinking equipment, baby bottles and teats/nipples, soothers (dummies)/pacifiers, etc.
