Food Contact Materials


Aaron Industries Corp. has received a letter of no objection from the United States Food and Drug Administration’s Center of Food Safety and Applied Nutrition for our recycling process to produce a blended post-consumer recycled polypropylene (PP) and post-consumer high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and post-industrial PP material that is suitable for food contact application.

AARO-GREEN® Polypropylene and AARO-GREEN® HDPE are intended for use at levels up to 100% recycled content in manufacturing single use food-contact articles, such as disposable cutlery and trays, caps, closures, and lids for food service.  The finished articles may contact all food types under Conditions of Use C through G.
