In an article published on October 1, 2015 by the news provider Food Chemical News, journalist Ingrid Mezo reports on the demand from food makers for more transparency in the food packaging supply chain. When problems arise with a food packaging, e.g. leaching of ink or odors into the final product, food brand owners ultimately take the blame. Therefore, food companies such as Wrigley and Nestlé make efforts and sometimes go beyond authority regulations to make sure their suppliers are compliant with the regulations and that the packaging materials do not contaminate the food product.
