Things are progressing


PVC-free closures to be on the march

More and more food manufacturers now choose PVC-free sealants. Where shelves were once exclusively dominated by glass jars with contents from Feinkost Dittmann, the list of manufacturers using packaging free of PVC and plasticizers now reads like a Who's Who of the delicacies sector. Accordingly, suppliers of natural foods Bruno Fischer and Zwergenwiese have for some time now been among those companies achieving "a further milestone for the sake of nature" (Bruno Fischer) by using PVC-free lids. Larsen Seafood, Orto Mio (pestos, sauces), Hutesa (e.g. pickled olives), Jütro, Münchner Kindl Senf, Tartex, Polli (e.g. pestos, sauces, pickled vegetable), Hojiblanca (olives, olive oil, wine), Lee Kum Kee (flavored sauces) are other commercial fillers who entirely rely on PROVALIN®. What's more, the compound is currently being qualified by many companies which are about to launch products with PVC-free lid seals. Individual discussions and product developments are also being held with brand-name producers and when it comes to own brands, there is also a willingness to take the decisive step toward converting to low-migration and/or migration-conformant seals.

"We have waited a long time for such a solution for ranges in glass packaging", is the almost universal opinion held by the trade and consumer goods industry.

Those who rely on this PVC-free seal today can depend on tested safety. All seals are tested thoroughly prior to commercialization. Test laboratories like Institut Nehring and SQTS in Switzerland regularly draw up independent migration reports.
