Can we have high whiteness and food safety in our food packaging?

WHAT WE LOVE:

  • Incredibly white packaging
  • Packaging that is safe

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • Food safety regulations limit the amount of optical brighteners that can be used
  • This limits papermaker in the whiteness of their produced packaging

The Archroma Way: Safe, Efficient, Enhanced. It’s our nature.

    Safe to use, safe to release and also safe to wear.
  2. EFFICIENT – IT’S OUR NATURE TO RETHINK SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING
    Innovating application processes that minimize resources and maximize productivity, both in our and our customers’ manufacturing as well as by setting ourselves ambitious sustainability goals.
  3. ENHANCED – IT’S OUR NATURE TO ADD ANOTHER LEVEL OF VALUE
    Your innovation is critical. Additional effects, functionalities and aesthetics give additional value, helping consumers to achieve their goals, for a life enhanced
