EU acrylamide legislation: Are your products compliant?

Sign up for our webinar to find out.

Acrylamide levels across the EU are subject to a monitoring and benchmarking scheme. This requires food and beverage manufacturers to aim for As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) acrylamide levels. The scope of the scheme was recently broadened with a new, non-exhaustive list of products to be monitored. More potato, bakery and cereal products than ever before are now included in the scheme. The list also covers a variety of other foods including root vegetable fries, fruit crisps and cocoa powder.

The scheme’s benchmarks are also in the legislative spotlight. Regulation currently under consideration proposes adjustments to them. The same legislation also proposes that maximum limits be introduced. Whether or not the legislation passes, it will raise awareness among health-conscious consumers and retailers, leading to increasing demands for lower acrylamide levels. 

Join our webinar to find out what impact this legislative activity has on products you sell into EU markets. The panel will also share a simple, efficient way to check your products’ compliance and let you know what steps you can take to go well beyond compliance in a broad range of applications. 

You can also take part in a question and answer session with the speakers Søren Rasmus Beyer Langkilde, Flemming Mark Christensen and Nadine Muro Jimenez after the webinar. 

We hope to see you there.
