BETHESDA, MD (January 22, 2016) Dr. Stephen Klump, Head of Packaging Quality & Safety for Nestlé, will share the latest from the Nestlé packaging safety and compliance program, as part of a panel discussion on Food Packaging at the RadTech 2016 UV+EB Technology Conference and Exhibition, May 16-18 in Rosemont, Chicago, IL.
In addition to Dr. Klump, panelists include Nick Ivory of Sun Chemical, Peter Walther of Siegwerk and Don Duncan, Wikoff Color Corp. Planned panel topics include migration definitions, limits, testing, and the various approaches among countries and regions in addressing migration concerns; safety issues versus customer perception will also be explored. “Migration issues are the absolutely hottest topic in packaging for food, pharmaceuticals and tobacco and there are many opinions about what should be done,” says Don Duncan, Wikoff Color and recent President of RadTech. “We will attempt to distill those down and separate fact from fiction as well as separate legitimate concerns (either technical, health or marketing) from panic and paranoia.”
The RadTech 2016 Conference and Exhibition features over 100 presentations, nearly 80 exhibitors as well as short courses and special presentations on UV+EB technical and market advancements. For details and registration, please visit http://www.radtech2016.com.
