Corrugated boxes: clean solution for packaging – Corrugated board is the cleanest solution for packaging. Why?
Because of very high temperatures applied during the manufacturing process (Corrugated manufacturing process uses heating elements with temperatures between 180 °C and 200 °C. The material itself reaches temperatures of at least 100 °C three times, once during the manufacture of the paper itself, and twice during the process of conversion to corrugated board.
In addition each package is used for only one delivery. Because with corrugated board, consumers and customers can be sure that every box, tray, and carton is being used for the first time. Guaranteed.
Good Manufacturing Practice: quality, safe and hygienic – Since 2003, the ‘FEFCO/ESBO International Good Manufacturing Practice’ (GMP) Standard has confirmed that corrugated board products satisfy all requirements of the food industry pertaining to quality, safety, and hygiene. In general, there is no need to implement costly audits to verify this fact. This standard, the only one needed in the corrugated board industry, can be easily integrated into existing certification systems such as ISO 9000, it meets as well the criteria of other standards, such as those set by the BRC/IoP (British Retail Consortium Global Standard for Food Packaging).
The Federation of Corrugated Box Manufacturers (FCBM) of India and Indian Corrugated Case Manufacturers’ Association (ICCMA) have discussed in many forums on Guideline for the Compliance of Paper & Board Materials.
It gives guidance to Corrugated Box producers as well as institutions and public authorities on how to ensure that paper and board meets the quality standards appropriate to its intended use.
