Nestlé Featured on UV+EB Food Packaging Panel at RadTech 2016

05.12.16

Planned topics include migration definitions, limits, testing and the various approaches among countries.

Dr. Stephen Klump, head of packaging suality and safety for Nestlé, will share the latest from the Nestlé packaging safety and compliance program, as part of a panel discussion on Food Packaging at the RadTech 2016 UV+EB Technology Conference and Exhibition, May 16-18 in Rosemont, Chicago, IL.

In addition to Dr. Klump, panelists include Nick Ivory of Sun Chemical, Peter Walther of Siegwerk and Don Duncan of Wikoff Color. Planned panel topics include migration definitions, limits, testing and the various approaches among countries and regions in addressing migration concerns; safety issues versus customer perception will also be explored.

“Migration issues are the absolutely hottest topic in packaging for food, pharmaceuticals and tobacco and there are many opinions about what should be done,” said Dr. Duncan, who recently served as president of RadTech. “We will attempt to distill those down and separate fact from fiction as well as separate legitimate concerns (either technical, health or marketing) from panic and paranoia.”

The RadTech 2016 Conference and Exhibition features more than 100 presentations, nearly 80 exhibitors as well as short courses and special presentations on UV+EB technical and market advancements. For details and registration, please visit www.radtech2016.com.
