Repsol has organised at its headquarters in Madrid a conference on “Food Safety in Packaging". The entire food industry value chain was present at this event: renowned brands in the food sector; commercial distribution companies; packaging companies; associations; technological institutes; environmental organisations and public bodies, among others.
During the conference, Repsol highlighted that the development of safe products for the final consumer is the company’s priority objective.
Repsol has recently obtained the FSSC 22000 certification in its Tarragona industrial complex. This is the first polyolefins production centre worldwide to receive such certification, an evidence of Repsol's commitment and leadership in food safety.
This achievement has been possible due to the implementation of a strong and effective food safety management system that meets the requirements of the regulators, the food sector and the final consumers. Additionally, the company is carrying out all the required actions to obtain this same certification for its two other polyolefins production centres, in Puertollano and Sines (Portugal).
The conference aimed to offer different perspectives on food safety in packaging, by complementing Repsol specialists’ interventions with the participation of several field experts: Leonor García, Public Affairs Director at PlasticsEurope; Cesar Casado, Head of Unit for Chemical Risks in Food, at the Spanish Agency for Consumer Affairs, Food Safety and Nutrition (AECOSAN) and Cristina Nerin, Professor of Analytical Chemistry, at the University of Zaragoza.
This conference is another example of Repsol's commitment to food safety and the company's experience in the sector. An experience that enables the company to add value and offer advanced and specific solutions both to its customers and the final consumer.
