complies with the 4th draft of the
German Mineral Oil Ordinance
FOODCART™ is a recycled cartonboard with a functional barrier. Using FOODCART™ limits the migration of MOAH (C16 to C35; MOAH = Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbons) into foods to a maximum of 0.5 mg/kg. This complies with the threshold demanded by the 4th draft of the German Mineral Oil Ordinance. By contrast, FOODBOARD™, which has already been available in European supermarket shelves since early 2016, is a barrier cartonboard with ultimate protection function, as it allows no MOAH Migration at all (detection limit = 0.15 mg/kg).
Apart from mineral oils, FOODCART™ protects packaged foods from a number of other defined unintended substances such as phthalates and bisphenol A, and from cross-contamination. The effectiveness of the new cartonboard quality is confirmed by the results of internal and external migration analyses. FOODCART™ was specially developed for packaging foods like rice, cereals, and pasta.
Simple to convert – completely traceable via its own app
Information on the gluing and printing process helps with
converting FOODCART™. It does not require any certification of the converting process. Existing die-cutting forms can still be used with FOODCART™, as long as the cartonboard to be replaced is of comparable thickness. Complete traceability of the packages throughout the entire production process is ensured by the FOODCART™ app, so transparency in the supply chain is guaranteed. Our technical service is always on hand to help with technical questions and expedient application knowledge.
FOODCART™ is produced inline on the cartonboard machine in the Austrian Frohnleiten mill and is available with FSC® or PEFC™ certification. FOODCART™ is an environmentally-friendly cartonboard solution and not an extruded or laminated compound – the cartonboard is recyclable and biodegradable.
