Recently the regulatory status of the Liquidseal Fruits BV products expanded regarding to the food contact laws and regulations in Japan and China. This expansion brings the company new market opportunities by offering their post harvest product to the local growers, importers and packers active in the Japanese and Chinese markets. The chem-free post harvest products from Liquidseal result in extended shelf-life of fruits, reduced use of plastic packaging and chemicals.
Through Liquidseal's legal partner office all the necessary research and tests where done. This resulted in the official approval statement that products comply with the applicable legislations for food contact material for these Asian markets.
"The coating from Liquidseal is intended to be applied only to non-edible peels for fruits and vegetables: The coating acts as a barrier-type packaging material and has no active components that would have a technical effect on the fruit itself. Liquidseal does not migrate through the peel to the fruit and is easily removed by water," hence the approval statement.
