The converting (printing, varnishing, 

cutting, creasing, glueing) and packing of FOODBOARD™ is made in accordance with the Converting Guideline. A continuous traceability of each single pallet over the entire production process is then ensured by the FOODBOARD™ app. With the optional use of the FOODBOARD™ logo on the packaging, consumers can be informed about the functional barrier.
