THE ‘FOREVER’ CHEMICAL
PFAS Use in the Food and Beverage Industry
The FDA has authorized the use of specific PFAS (per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances) for food-related products, including paperboard packaging, pet food bags, fast food wrappers, and as a processing aid in food manufacturing equipment, for nearly 60 years. Extremely long-lasting, practically unbreakable, and possibly linked to health and environmental issues, these compounds have drawn considerable negative attention from environmental advocates and consumers alike. Join us as our panel of experts dive into the greater implications of PFAS use, state bans on use, and what this means for your business.
This event is open and free to all FaB members.
