UPM Raflatac: FDA-approved facestock and adhesive for fruit and vegetable labeling

UPM Raflatac announces the launch of RH04FG, a hotmelt adhesive that is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for direct contact with fruit and vegetable skin.

RH04FG offers high initial tack, securely affixing labels to all fruits and vegetables while increasing automated labeling accuracy.

Currently, this adhesive is paired with Foodgloss OBA, an FDA-approved lightweight glossy paper that is optical brightening agent-free. “We’re pleased to offer a unique fruit and vegetable labeling solution that goes the extra mile to increase customer confidence,” says Jean-Marc Borel, Specials Business Director, Americas. “Both the facestock and adhesive meet tough FDA requirements for direct contact with raw fruits and vegetables.”

Foodgloss OBA and RH04FG meet FDA requirements 21 CFR 176.170 and 176.180 for facestocks and 21 CFR 175.125(b)(2) for adhesives.
