Lamitech, an established leader in the converting of paperboard in North America, announced that its production facility has passed its annual food safety inspection and audit performed by the American Institute of Baking (AIB) International. This certificate of achievement signifies that Lamitech produces clean, safe paperboard products qualified for use in the food industry.
Lamitech received 955 out of 1,000 possible points, a “Superior” rating, and delivered perfect scores of 200 out of 200 points in three of five categories.
