Food safe products and contact materials 

Food safe cookware and tableware Products that come into contact with food must not transfer materials onto the food that will affect its taste or quality. 
 
To make sure this doesn’t happen, the products must be rigorosly tested. During testing, the product is exposed to a range of food simulants. Contact tests are carried out at high temperatures and over long periods of time.
