Food contact materials, analysis and consulting

WESSLING stands for the conformity of food contact materials: our specialists use the latest laboratory technology and competent expert services to ensure that your food contact products are safe for consumers.

Materials that come into contact with food must not negatively affect the quality of the food - in either chemical, physical or sensory terms. At the same time, the health of consumers must not be placed at risk.

Regulations and specifications

The EU's framework regulation, Regulation (EC) 1935/2004, regulates the requirements for all food contact materials. There are also further European regulations, directives, national legislation or recommendations which may differ extensively depending on the characteristics of the product.

The WESSLING experts keep an eye on the specifications: benefit from reliable laboratory analysis in combination with tailored expert services. Our specialists are certified for analysing official cross checks according to Section 43 of the German Food and Feed Code (LFGB).
