Shrinkfilm Product Safety
With increased focus on product safety throughout the food chain, it is important for all associated products, including packaging materials, to be as free from physical, biological or chemical contamination as is possible, using FDA and USDA published Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP's). We at Bollore Inc. take this responsibility very seriously, as outlined in our Shrinkfilm Product Safety Policy below. That is why we are periodically audited by outside organizations (currently AIB International) for compliance to the GFSI-approved food safety scheme FSSC22000 (the combination of ISO22000:2005, ISO/TS220002-4 and additional FSSC22000 requirements).

It is the policy of Bollore Incorporated to always provide our Shrink Film customers with products that are free from any physical, chemical, or biological agent that would risk contamination, when used in direct-contact food or overwrap pharmaceutical packaging applications.
Protocols are in place for management, communication, pest control, cleaning, operations, and maintenance, as defined by FDA regulations, as well as market standards. All processes are annually audited by outside organizations to certify compliance to these standards.
