Jeddah-based flexible paper packaging manufacturer, Multipak, offers German and European market eco-friendly, vivid, 2-layer cone sleeves with an aluminum outer layer and an inner paper layer.

ISEGA, acknowledged and registered German testing laboratory, analyzed Multipak’s printed and glued ice cream cone paper and foil laminate and confirmed compliance with European quality and food safety standards. The product assessment tested whether Multipak ice cream cone sleeves can safely come in contact with food products without changing taste or chemical composition.

ISEGA ran four tests on the cone sleeves:

1.     Determination of the migration into Tenax (Modified Polyphenylene Oxide)
2.     Determination of the transfer of antimicrobial constituents
3.     Determination of volatile organic compounds
4.     Sensory analysis for indirect transition of taste

The thorough testing process ran over 25 days from 10 November – 5 December 2011. The assessment results are consistent with Multipak’s quest to continuously meet internationally-recognized quality standards.

ISEGA has the accreditation of Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle (DAkks) and Deutsche Akkreditierungssstelle Chemie (DACH), national accreditation bodies for the Federal Republic of Germany.

Rabih Henoud, Multipak Operations Manager, states,

“We believe that yesterday's option is today's must and thus Multipak continuously strives to meet and exceed standards of manufacturing excellence. ISEGA is yet another accreditation answering the needs of highly selective European customers.”
