Nanotechnologies in Food Packaging: an Exploratory Appraisal of Safety and Regulation

(June 2016)

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) commissioned ToxConsult Pty Ltd to provide a literature review of the safety and regulation of nanotechnologies in food packaging. To achieve this target, a comprehensive literature search was undertaken in various scientific databases and agency websites; relevant references were sourced and reviewed. In addition, a patent search was conducted with the aim of identifying evidence for nanomaterials currently used in food packaging applications in Australia, New Zealand, United States, Europe, and Asia. It is recognised that not all such technologies may have been identified by the applied search techniques
