Food packaging is an essential part of food safety. This week’s web seminar explains the complex packaging system adopted by the European Union for their food. The web seminar bases most of its finding with the current food packaging system adopted in the United States – it will compare the two systems to draw out ideas that will help us better understand how the European system works. With an American audience in mind, keep your eyes and ears open and your mind ready to adapt facts to help you in the Australian climate for food packaging.
