PFAS Statement

Pakkauspojat Oy and its material suppliers are committed to using only suitable materials in each case with our customers. When our materials or packages are used  in direct contact with food, the materials are always selected so that packaging materials do not transfer any constituents into food in quantities that endangers health or changes properties of the packed food.

Food contact materials and articles, manufactured by our suppliers, comply with the Regulation (EC) 1935/2004 to ensure they are safe at the intended end-use application. All food contact materials and articles are manufactured in accordance with the Good Manufacturing Practises (GMP) as required in the Regulation (EC) 2023/2006.

PFAS are not used as raw material or intentionally added to the materials we use. Please note that our material suppliers do not analyze PFAS and traces of PFAS may be found in corrugated board and packaging as an impurity. 

We use corrugated materials from fully virgin and fresh fibers, where PFAS are not used. But we also use predominantly or fully recycled fiber materials. According to our material suppliers information the amount of recycled fibers in corrugated cardboard materials varies a lot and depends on the material that is used. In some materials there are no  recycled fibers at all (virgin and fresh fibers) as in some materials the amount of recycled fibers is from 10% up to 85% of the material. Products made from recycled fibers may contain residuals of PFAS as an impurity due to use of recycled fibers. If recycled fibers are used, an additional barrier might be needed if it is necessary to prevent migration of substances.

Conflict Minerals Statement
