Kallima Paperboard is now FDA-compliant

September 1, 2015

Adrienne J.

Since May 1, 2015, the Kallima® paperboard formulations comply fully with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, and all applicable food additive regulations, for certain food packaging applications. In particular, they may be used for packaging for dry foods that contain no surface oil or fat, under conditions as severe as FDA's Conditions of Use E ("Room temperature filled and stored").

Along with assuring the safety of the food we eat, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulates the packaging (and the elements which comprise that packaging) in which our food is delivered to us. Conforming to the terms of those food packaging-specific rules and regulations results in an FDA-compliant product.

When Kallima® paperboard is used in the approved manner, it is not expected to become an element of the food contained in the final packaging, and therefore is in compliance with the FDA's Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
