Webinar recording
April 30, 2020

Consumption levels of 3-MCPDe in food are considered safe for most consumers, but they pose a potential health concern to high consumers in younger age groups. Therefore, the European Commission has placed new, stricter maximum limits of 3-MCPD esters for vegetable and fish oils incorporated in foodstuffs for Young Children (age 1-3 years). The new EU legislation on 3-MCPDe levels is expected to come into effect January 2021.

These new tightened food safety regulations will impact food manufacturers operating in the bakery, confectionery, and infant food and formula sectors. The legislation is not only relevant to manufacturers of food specifically for young children, but also for producers that make products which are consumed by the whole family. They should consider how this legislation will affect their portfolio.

As a food manufacturer, how can you navigate the opportunities and challenges this new legislation presents?

In this webinar, our oils and fats experts will provide you with insights on:

  • The current situation and new expected legislation for 3-MCPDe levels in vegetable oils
  • The impact this legislation may have on your business
  • How tailored solutions can help food manufacturers operating under high public scrutiny to meet the demands of consumers, retailers, NGOs and authorities
