Achieving The Highest Standards for Food Safety

With a large percentage of food produced worldwide not eaten, minimizing food waste by extending shelf-life and improving packaging barrier technology are key goals. So, food packaging not only needs to keep food safe, it must maintain the quality of the product it contains. 

At Solvay, we work closely with our clients to implement exacting practices in Aseptic Packaging, Cleaning in Place (CIP), and Food Contact Sanitisation to ensure products are produced and packaged in a safe, sterile, and sustainable environment. 

Our range of solutions includes aseptic board & paper packaging for beverages, greaseproof coatings, glass for bottles and jars, and plastics for film, casings, bottles, etc.

Solvay's  High Barrier Polymers (HBP) offer a combined water vapor and oxygen barrier plus good heat-sealing properties for protecting fresh, dry, and wrapped food. Our powerful antioxidant significantly extends the shelf-life of baked foods, fats, and oils while our fine powder silica prevents food caking during handling and processing. Our food packaging materials also include fluorinated fluids used for oil and grease-resistant packaging.
