The Framework Regulation (EC) 1935/2004 (L338/4) states that food contact materials shall be safe. They shall not transfer their components into the food in quantities that could endanger human health, change the composition of the food in an unacceptable way or deteriorate the taste and odour of foodstuffs.
If an article is intended for food contact it shall be labelled for food contact or bear the symbol with a glass and fork. In cases where the intention for food contact is obvious by the nature of the article e.g. knife, fork, wine glass, this labelling is not obligatory.
SAGA products are tested for suitability for food contact by independent third party organizations. All raw materials are approved for food contact. Our production sites have been certified according ISO 22000, BCR-CP or IFS-HPC hygiene management standards.
