What is Bisphenol A or BPA?

Bisphenol A, commonly known as BPA, acts as a safety barrier in food packaging to ensure that food products are completely sealed in their containers and that they do not come into direct contact with certain parts of the packaging, such as the inner walls of a steel or aluminum can. Tests on the safety of BPA by Health Canada, the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.K. Food Standards Agency, and a number of other academic and scientific institutions have demonstrated that the potential human exposure to BPA is extremely small and poses no known risk to human health.

Our initiative to convert from liners containing BPA to an alternative is 100% complete. The new lining material varies depending on the acidity of ingredients and processing methods, and has been fully tested for safety.
