H.B. Fuller recently announced that it has successfully completed the Food Safety System Certification (FSSC 22000) for its plant in Lüneburg, Germany, the company's largest in Europe and an important manufacturing facility within its global network to earn this key certificate. FSSC 22000 is a recognized industry standard for food packaging suppliers by the Global Food Safety initiative (GFSI), a Coalition of Action from the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) that brings together many of the world's leading consumer goods companies to oversee food safety standards for businesses and to help ensure safe food for everyone.

Recent numbers from GFSI show that an estimated 600 million people around the world become ill after eating contaminated food each year, and concerns over food hygiene have been intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic. H.B. Fuller produces and supplies adhesives used to manufacture packaging for many must-needed food and beverage products, many of which have been deemed essential throughout the pandemic.
