It is urgent to ensure the safety and hygiene of food packaging.

with the continuous improvement of people's living standards and the increasing attention to healthy consumption, there are higher requirements for food quality and safety. The corresponding food packaging materials have been widely valued by the whole society. The food safety problems caused by plastic containers and soft plastic packaging materials for food have gradually attracted the attention of all walks of life. Because food containers and food packaging materials do have a very close relationship with food safety

generally speaking, the main function of packaging is to protect commodities, beautify commodities and make them convenient for preservation, storage, transportation and use. However, there are higher requirements for the plastic packaging of food. Food is closely related to people's life and health. Of course, the health and safety of food itself is very important. However, plastic packaging materials can not be ignored. This not only requires that the plastic packaging materials have good barrier property, temperature resistance, oil resistance, mechanical strength and ease of use, so as to ensure the requirements for food quality, preservation and extending the shelf life of food, but also pay attention to the chemical stability of the plastic materials themselves and the health and safety of the additives selected, as well as the safety and non-toxic of the adhesives used for composite films and the solvents used for printing inks. In other words, the plastic materials used as food packaging shall not react when contacting with food, and there shall be no migration of foreign matters such as low molecular weight substances or additives or solvents to food, so as to ensure the safety and health of food without any pollution

food packaging occupies a very important position in China's packaging industry and is the pillar industry of the packaging industry. According to the information provided by the World Packaging Organization (WPO), the global packaging industry turnover has exceeded US $500billion, while 4 Airflow Hood: Φ 75mm × The composition of 500mm is as follows: paper and paperboard 32%, plastics 28%, metals 24%, glass 6%, packaging machinery 5%, and others 5%. The top four packaging materials are paper, plastics, metals and glass, which together account for about 90% of the turnover of the food packaging industry. In Japan, the average annual growth rate of the total consumption of various packaging materials is 2.8%, of which paper and paper account for 4.7%, and metal 4 accounts for about 80% of the interior decoration 9%, glass 3.3%, and plastic 7.1%, indicating that plastic packaging materials are still the fastest growing packaging materials

the use of plastics as packaging materials is an important symbol of the development of modern packaging technology. Because of its rich source of raw materials, low cost, excellent performance and convenient use, it is widely used in the packaging of various goods, including food, and gradually and partially replaces the traditional packaging materials such as glass, metal and paper, which has greatly changed the appearance of commodity packaging. In the plastic packaging materials, especially for food and drug packaging, the number of soft plastic composite packaging accounts for a large proportion. This is because it plays a very important role in the shelf life, health and safety, storage, transportation and convenience of use of food and drugs

however, due to management and other reasons, some plastic packaging materials used for food still have some health and safety problems, as well as the recycling of packaging waste and environmental pollution

it is reported that the recent sampling survey of plastic packaging bags in various parts of China shows that the overall pass rate is only 50~60%. There are two main factors that cause unqualified packaging bags: one is the improper selection of raw materials, which do not meet the requirements of China's food law; Second, there is randomness or lack of care in adding additives. In short, the safety and health problems of plastic packaging materials for food will pose a great threat and harm to the health of consumers, which must not be taken lightly

for example, some enterprises use industrial grade materials to produce food packaging bags in order to reduce costs. Some enterprises even use waste plastics that are not allowed to be used by the state as raw materials to produce food packaging bags. It is reported that the sampling inspection organized by Qiqihar packaging office in Heilongjiang Province found that 60% of food packaging bags were processed from medical waste and recycled waste plastics. What a shocking case

in terms of additives, in order to improve some properties, some plastic packaging bag manufacturers randomly use some non food grade additives in the production process, such as non food plasticizers, stabilizers, etc. For example, PVC uses lead salts such as lead stearate as stabilizers, which has great toxicity and will cause health hazards to human body

the environmental pollution caused by the waste of packaging materials is also a serious social problem. At present, the total consumption of plastics in China is about 18million tons, and the final waste plastics that cannot be recycled are about 1.2 ~ 1.6 million tons, most of which are difficult to recycle because they cannot be classified correctly. If the waste plastics are marked with categories, they can be directly collected by categories, so as to facilitate recycling and use for non food packaging purposes, so as to reduce the environmental pollution caused by waste plastics. Of course, according to the Chinese food law, recycled plastics cannot be used for plastic products for food packaging. Marking the recycled plastics is an effective way to avoid using recycled plastics for plastic products for food packaging

in order to ensure the safety and health of plastic packaging for food, the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine of the people's Republic of China (AQSIQ) has started the market access system for 39 kinds of plastic packaging, containers, tools and other products for food since July 2006. Enterprises that have passed the market access review can use QS marks on their product packaging. According to the plan of the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine of the people's Republic of China, it will take two years and three steps to realize the comprehensive quality supervision over the production of food related products, which is very necessary

the implementation of the food packaging market access system can undoubtedly effectively protect the interests of consumers and ensure their personal health and safety. The implementation rules require enterprises to record the key raw materials including the main raw materials, additives and printing inks used and their suppliers' catalogues, so as to supervise and control the food packaging/container products produced in batches, so that consumers can buy products that ensure safety and security. For the food and drugs that millions of consumers want to eat every day, they must use the soft plastic packaging materials that can not only protect the contents from the pollution of viruses and bacteria, but also require the soft plastic packaging materials to comply with the safety and health regulations to avoid the packaging materials from polluting the packaged food and drugs. Therefore, it is urgent to improve the health and safety of food packaging

Jiangsu Zhongda New Materials Group Co., Ltd. is the production base of soft plastic packaging materials in China, producing BOPET, BOPP, CPP and other soft plastic packaging materials, most of which are used for the release of enterprise standards for compression testing machines in the food composite packaging rubber and plastic products industry. The headquarters of Jiangsu Zhongda Group and its film manufacturing subsidiaries are responsible for high-resolution; The upper and lower limits can be set. The state will implement the production license system for plastic packaging, containers, tools, etc. for food, which expresses its warm response and active support, and has made specific deployment and arrangement

first of all, relevant personnel of subsidiaries were organized to attend a three-day training course on food safety and hygiene held by Jiangsu Provincial Quality Inspection Bureau to learn about laws and regulations such as food law and quality law, as well as testing methods such as hygienic performance of food packaging

then, each subsidiary studied and publicized the detailed rules for production license review of plastic packaging, containers, tools and other products for food, unified their thinking, improved their understanding, and provided production materials, procurement quality control, production process control The product quality inspection and production safety protection and other seven chapters, 25 articles and 55 verification contents were compared and self checked. It was found that there were 8 management systems to be prepared, so relevant personnel were organized to prepare them in time; Find out the places that need to be rectified, and actively arrange for preparation and rectification as required

Changzhou Zhongheng subsidiary also closely combines the 5S (Seiri, seition, Seiso, Seiketsu, Shitsuke) management and ISO9000 standard implementation work currently being or to be carried out with the application of production license enterprises of plastic packaging, containers, tools and other products for food, so as to complement and cross each other, so as to strive to become a production license enterprise of plastic packaging, containers, tools and other products for food as soon as possible, Strive to use the QS (quality safety) mark on the soft plastic packaging products of Jiangsu Zhongda Group New Materials Co., Ltd. in time, so as to continue to make new and greater contributions to the provision of China's food safety packaging materials, reassure the people and satisfy the people
