Food packaging printing or coding on food can be filled with complexity. Substances that directly touch food are considered food additives and are more stringently controlled than those that are on the packaging, but any packaging inks that may inadvertently come into contact with food may also need to be of incidental food-grade quality.
For food packaging printing or coding directly on food, we offer a line of continuous inkjet inks together with a line o f wax-based, edible hot-melt inks that are FDA, EU, and kosher compliant. For incidental food contact with packaging, a line of inks is also available.
The 9450 continuous inkjet printer offers traceable egg coding at high-speed. Available in blue or red and compliant with all local and national regulations, these dedicated food-grade inks can be used to code more than 250,000 eggs an hour on an eight-track grading machine.
