Food Contact Materials

The Finnish Food Act (297/2021) is also partially applied to materials and articles that come into contact with food. For example, food packing materials, dishes, cutlery, cooking supplies and appliances are food contact materials. According The Finnish Food Act (13 §), food contact material operators (manufacturers, importers, suppliers/wholesalers) must notify the municipal food authority about their operations. A food business operator, e.g. a wholesaler, can be a food contact material operator as well.

More information can be found from Finnish Food Authority.
