20 Oct 2021 | By Rahul Kumar
Four eminent speakers, Utsab Choudhuri, senior vice-president, head-technology, DIC India; Amit Ray, vice-chairman, Vijayneha Polymers; Debashish Dasgupta, brand manager, packaging development manager, Unilever Beverage; Rashmi Dhiman, R&D packaging manager, Unilever Ice Cream SA; and Sagar Singh, deputy director, Chemical Department, Bureau of Indian Standards will share their views and experiences on the topic.
The hour-long webinar will be hosted by Sriraam Selvam of PrintWeek and questions will be answered at the end of the webinar.
Noel D’cunha, managing editor, PrintWeek and WhatPackaging?, said, “Food packaging is growing at a rapid pace and a pandemic pushed the segment and created huge demand for packaged food due to hygiene and others. Food contamination and direct touch of food with the packaging material is a big concern in the industry. Toluene is one of the fatal chemicals used in packaging printing and removal of this is a big concern and needs awareness. The webinar will be helpful to spread the light about the concern and industry will be benefited. Audience can definitely take advantage of our speakers’ expertise.”
Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) have banned toluene-based printing inks in food packaging from 1 July 2021.
