Food safety
Packaging
BY ANDY NELSON
Post-COVID, more
consumers want their
fresh foods packaged,
and food safety is more
important than ever.
DURING COVID, FOOD SAFETY BECAME MORE IMPORTANT THAN
EVER to grocery retailers and their customers. Packaging suppliers
responded with new products and a renewed commitment to delivering
foods sold in the grocery perimeter that are as safe as they can be.
When the pandemic started, Hartsville, S.C.-based Novolex conducted
a thorough review of its procedures that support its food safety
compliance, said Tracy Bates, the company's director of corporate
quality. The company found that the stringent food safety procedures
and protocols already in place ensured that packaging used for food
remained safe for consumers.
" Due to COVID, there is more awareness around food hygiene and
the health implications of contagious diseases, " Bates said. " As a result,
consumer behavior has adapted, and grocery stores will continue to
respond to these new expectations and embrace packaging solutions that
prioritize consumer safety and communicate the benefits of doing so. "
Now more than ever - especially with e-commerce - it's important

for food sellers to convey to consumers their food is safe and secure,
and one of the easiest ways to deliver on that expectation is by ensuring
that packaging demonstrates to the consumer that the food, from the
moment it was packaged, has not been compromised.
Grocery retailers and customers have always expected and valued
food safety from Novolex packaging products, Bates said. Novolex
manufactures food packaging with the highest quality control and food
safety processes, and as the company seeks to set the industry standard
on food safety, its facilities that produce containers for packaging of
items sold in fresh grocery departments are certified to Global Food
Safety Initiative (GFSI)-recognized food safety standards.
" The certifications require robust food safety programs such as food
defense and mandate strong manufacturing practices, " Bates said.
" Our certified plants undergo third party audits annually as an external
assurance that our food contact products are safe for our customers
and their consumers. "
