Report no. 2/14: CONCAWE organised a 2-day Mineral Oil Cross Industry Issues (MOCRINIS)Workshop in Bologna, Italy in September 2013. The objective of the Workshop was to address topics that have arisen following the publication of results demonstrating the presence of saturated and aromatic hydrocarbons in some foods. The Workshop was attended by delegates from a range of industry sectors with an interest in the issue such as mineral oil producers, printing ink manufacturers, cardboard and paper packaging industries as well as regulators from the European Union (EU) andindividual countries.

The topics of measurement and characterisation, exposure to and toxicity of hydrocarbons were discussed fully and openly and possible ways forward were identified. This report presents the proceedings of the MOCRINIS Workshop.
