Global packaging manufacturer RETAL's USA facility is its latest to gain the recognised food safety certificate FSSC22000.
Joining many of the RETAL plastic packaging and food-safe films production sites across Europe, RETAL PA is now approved as a certified supplier of PET preforms for food and beverage applications.
Admir Dobraca, general manager of RETAL PA, says, “The FSSC22000 is a strict and proven compliance system that confirms RETAL PA meets the highest norms of the food industry. It gives our customers and suppliers confidence that we have full competence in delivering food and beverage safe packaging from our facility here in Pennsylvania, joining the majority of our other RETAL facilities that serve the leading global beverage brands. The certification demonstrates that we follow a quality-conscious production process, guaranteed that no foreign material contaminates the PET throughout the manufacture of the preform at RETAL.”
Based on ISO Standards, the FSSC22000 is accepted by the Global Food Safety Initiative and defined as 'providing a framework for effectively managing your organisation's food safety responsibilities and demonstrates your company has a robust Food Safety Management System in place that meets the requirements of your customers and consumers'.
