FDA Approved Inks & Coatings
What is Food Safe Ink?
Any labels, packaging or printed materials that might have direct or indirect food contact need to be printed with Food Safe Ink and Coatings. Even pharmaceutical packaging and labeling falls into this classification. The designation is reserved for those inks, papers and coatings which the FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) deem safe enough to come in contact with food or drugs.
Where are Food Safe Inks Used?
Food-safe inks can be used for creating labels, coupons, promotions, in-package inserts or in-carton printing where the printed item could come into indirect contact with food, pharmaceutical or medical products. The FDA-Approved non-toxic inks we use come in CMYK (for 4-color process) as well as special order spot colors. They can be printed on FDA-Approved kosher print stocks to create beautiful food and beverage packages, boxes, wrappers or printed containers.
Our Food Safe Aqueous coating can protect printed items that will come into direct food contact such as wrappers, food containers, shelf or tray liners, etc. Utilizing the food safe ink and direct food contact laminate with a food safe substrate such as styrene, we can create Custom Bakery Display Tags, Plastic Food Badges or Deli Tags/Spear Tags in any color or shape to maintain your brand consistency.
