Vienna, 20 September 2017 – Mondi Neusiedler recently completed the certification process for food safety management and has been awarded the EN 15593 certification by the renowned Swiss certifier SQS (Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems).

Meeting customers’ hygiene requirements – every day

Food companies are using the speciality papers and professional printing papers produced at Mondi Neusiedler for their food packaging to combine the excellent print quality, an exceptional environmental profile and highest hygiene standards. The papers are for example converted into bread sleeves, bags, liners, folding boxes or secondary packaging. “For such converting purposes optimal technical paper grades are required and customers can rely on our knowledge and paper qualities,” explains Johannes Klumpp, Marketing & Sales Director Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper.

“Our customers are searching for a reliable partner and peace of mind when buying speciality papers for their food contact applications”, says Klumpp. “The certification fulfils exactly this need to ensure consumer safety as it independently proves Mondi Neusiedler complies with international standards in hygiene management. A quality our customers and end consumers can rely on every day”, he clarifies.

Mondi Group Food Safety Laboratory ensures consumer protection

In its own Food Safety Laboratory Mondi tests smart and customised packaging solutions that are optimised for food contact and support customers in meeting increasingly stringent regulatory requirements.

“We have a responsibility within the food packaging supply chain and are therefore taking part in processes to sustainably ensure consumer protection and guarantee product stewardship”, Klumpp says. “Our team of specialists develop optimised packaging solutions that meet the highest requirements for food contact and other sensitive packaging applications. We also support customers with know-how and solutions to meet increasing regulatory standards for food packaging."

Combining process and product certifications for consumer safety

Mondi Neusiedler introduced process certification EN 15593 at both production sites and can produce the food contact paper grades according the requirements of the German Recommendation XXXVI (BfR).

Mondi Neusiedler now offers a comprehensive quality, safety and sustainability framework certified according to ISO 9001:2008 (quality management), ISO 14001:2004 (environmental management), OHSAS 18001:2007 (occupational health and safety management), EN 15593 (hygiene management), FSC™ and PEFC™ chain-of-custody certifications.

Highest print quality and excellent runnability meet highest hygiene standards

Mondi’s portfolio of professional printing papers encompasses solutions for all modern printing technologies such as digital laser, high-speed inkjet or offset print. They are available in customised formats as reels and folio sheets and are produced under conditions meeting highest hygiene standards. “Food producers can now choose the paper with the shade and texture they like the most and which is ideally suited for their printing presses”, Klumpp adds. Professional printing brands such as Color Copy, PERGRAPHICA®, DNS® premium, DNS® for HP indigo, DNS® color print and DNS® high-speed inkjet, BIO TOP 3®, IQ PREMIUM, IQ SMOOTH, IQ BOARD white, MAESTRO® supreme, MAESTRO® extra, and YBBS® premium white board or even black IQ COLOR and black MAESTRO® color are certified to be used for food packaging.

Sustainable. Every day.

“Sustainability makes good business sense to us and to our customers. This is why we offer papers with impeccable environmental profiles”, states Johannes Klumpp. Mondi introduced the Green Range as an umbrella trademark for sustainable paper and packaging solutions. All Mondi uncoated fine papers belong to the Green Range. They are produced from FSC™ or PEFC™ certified wood from sustainably managed forests or 100% recycled paper, or are produced totally chlorine free (TCF). This is how consumers can make a contribution – every day.
