Declaration by the manufacturer
Unicup Sp z o.o., with its registered office in Elbląg, at Warszawska street nos.
52-54, is a producer of disposable paper cups for cold and hot drinks.
We hereby declare that all types of food packaging are produced by our company
with due diligence and in compliance with relevant standards to ensure that
products are safe for consumer health and the environment.
Disposable paper cups with a custom print are produced using offset technology.
Printed cups are made of boards for food packaging applications. These boards
comply with the standards set forth in Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004 of the
European Parliament, of the Council of 27 October 2004 on materials and articles
intended to come into contact with food, and requirements established in the
Resolution of the Council of Europe AP (2002) on paper and board used in food
contact applications of 17 September 2002. All inks used for printing on the outer
layer of board packaging are food-grade inks and do not modify the organoleptic
properties of beverages poured into the packaging. We use inks compliant with
EuPIA guidelines on printing inks applied to the non-food contact surface of food
packaging materials and articles. These inks have been approved for the
manufacture of food packaging in compliance with requirements set forth in
Regulation (EC) no. 1935/2004 on materials and articles intended to come into
contact with food.
Our products are refined with dispersion low-migration
coatings that have been approved for food packaging applications. The coatings are
manufactured from components recommended by the BFR (the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment),
the BVL (the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety), and the FDA
(the US Food and Drug Administration).
We use coatings manufacturedin compliance with the standards of Good Manufacturing Practice specified in Articles 5 and 6 of European Commission Regulation 2023/2006/EU.
In particular, we ensure compliance with Article 17 of the European Framework Regulation
1935/2004/EC. We also confirm compliance with the relevant EUPIA regulation.
Dispersion coatings are formulated to ensure the lowest level of migration. Coatings
are only used to cover the non-food side of the food packaging.
This declaration has been made based on our best knowledge,
which relies on information from the suppliers of individual materials used for the production
of our cups. Nevertheless, we are aware that the migration potential of ready-to-use
packaging ultimately depends on the compatibility of the packaging as a whole,
particularly all its components. Therefore, despite holding certificates for individual
packaging materials, every day we carry out regular compatibility tests in our plant
to analyse the manufactured ready products (cups). The information contained in
this declaration is based on our best knowledge, presents technical descriptions,
and is advisory. It does not release us from the responsibility of carrying out in-
house analyses or tests for clients, which we do continuously.
Please contact us should you have any questions.
