Webinar on PFAS in food and beverage packaging prohibition, 11/29/23

Prohibition takes effect January 1, 2024

Beginning January 1, 2024, the sale and distribution of food and beverage packaging containing intentionally added PFAS [per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances] chemicals will be prohibited in Minnesota (Minn. Stat. 325F.075).

Please join the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency for a Zoom webinar on this topic on Wednesday, November 29 at 2 p.m. The presentation will provide helpful information for industries preparing for this law to take effect.

Register for the webinar here.

MPCA staff will walk through current insights on how we’re moving forward with the prohibition, share lessons learned, and answer any questions you might have.

This PFAS in food packaging prohibition was passed in 2021 and is separate from requirements in 2023 PFAS legislation, including Amara’s Law, which will phase out other avoidable PFAS uses in Minnesota by 2032.

A recording of the webinar will be available on the MPCA’s YouTube page by December 1.
