Expansion of the application possibilities for thin layer films

  • Certification according to BRC Global Standard for packaging materials
  • Thin layer film solutions for food and medical packaging
  • Investment in buildings and production

Since the end of August, the thin film production unit of film specialist POLIFILM EXTRUSION GmbH, headquartered in Weißandt-Gölzau, Germany, has been certified according to the "BRC Global Standard for Packaging Materials".

By introducing the standard for quality, hygiene and product safety acknowledged by the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative), the company creates a further level of transparency for its international customers from the food industry and strengthens its position as a quality manufacturer on the market. "The certification enables us to further expand our portfolio of thin layer film solutions", comments Jens Kölble, Division Manager Packaging & Performance Films POLIFILM EXTRUSION on this step. Thin layer films extruded by POLIFILM are used in food packaging and as a component of pharmaceutical packaging.  For the certification, the company invested in the building condition as well as the production equipment.

POLIFILM had previously already underlined its position as a supplier for the food and hygiene products market with certification according to the European hygiene standard DIN EN 15593:2008.
