Summary: Food packaging and storage containers are essential to protecting the safety and integrity of food during transport and storage. Both the design and the composition of food containers play a critical role. Improperly designed food containers can pose a substantial hazard to consumers, either by failing to provide adequate protection against spoilage, or by introducing unwanted substances into food. The use of inappropriate substances in the production of food contact materials can deal to migration of substances into food that can cause tainting of flavours and other sensory characteristics, or even illness. On the other hand, the use of substances that offer inadequate protective properties can be just as dangerous, or even more so. This book reviews the legislation in place in various jurisdictions throughout the world to ensure the safe and effective use of the main types of food-contact materials.
