On 10 January 2014 FoodDrinkEurope and the European Commission jointly issued a revised version of the FoodDrinkEurope ‘Acrylamide Toolbox’. This takes into account the latest scientific and technological developments available to manufacturers to help them mitigate against acrylamide formation in their products.
Stakeholders are reminded that, FoodDrinkEurope have also published a set of pamphlets for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The pamphlets cover five food categories, including potato crisps, and were produced by the relevant European Trade associations working under the FoodDrinkEurope umbrella.
The pamphlets are available in 24 European languages on the European Commission’s website. For ease of reference copies are also available below.
*In 2011, the UK Snack, Nut and Crisp Manufacturers’ Association (SNACMA) partnered with the UK Food and Drink Federation to produce a series of webinars looking at the latest developments relating to acrylamide, and at the tools available for manufacturers to manage this potential contaminant. These webinars can be viewed on the FDF website here.
