Do you need plates, rods or tubes made from plastic for applications involving contact with food? We have them! We supply the food processing and packaging industry with food-grade-certified semi-finished plastic products and offer excellent availability as well as a fast cut-to-size service. Talk to us today!

The products in our food-grade range satisfy the specific requirements of food technology:

EU Directive 1935/2004 (10/2011)

US FDA compliance

Complete REACH compliance

Every food-grade product is accompanied at shipment by a Certificate of Conformity (COC) and a Declaration of Compliance (DOC).

In order to service the demands of the food industry even more efficiently, we have developed our KRÜGER blue® family for you. With blue plastics, you can increase safety in your systems! How? Read more here:

The blue plastics from the Krüger blue® family cover the entire spectrum of demands for machine parts used in the food industry. Do you need high-quality plastics and rapid availability? – Give us a call!

Advantages of blue plastics:

In addition to standard materials such as PE, POM, PET-P, PEEK and PUR, there are also special versions that can be detected using metal detectors to make your process even safer. Detectors in the systems pick up potential contamination in food resulting from component breakage or wear.

What’s more, we can also do ready-made parts: whether it be for machining or thermal moulding processes, our products are designed according to your drawings and deliver the very best quality!
