Bisphenol-A (BPA) Statement

 Bisphenol-A (BPA) Statement

Pacific Coast Producers does not utilize can liners that utilize Bisphenol-A (BPA) or any other Bisphenol type ingredient.  Our single serve plastic bowls have always been made with materials that do not utilize BPA.

We offer the following comments to the questions related to polyvinyl chloride-based coatings:
1. Why did PCP choose the vinyl lining?

Our can supplier recommended this lining because it has demonstrated exceptional performance across a broad spectrum of tomato products over many years of use. It is the best choice for hot fill tomato packs in terms of stain and corrosion protection even exceeding the performance of BPA based epoxy coatings.

2. What type of environmental concerns are there when producing a can with vinyl lining?

Our supplier believes there are no significant environmental concerns with the production of this lining due to the low temperature production which does not cause harmful emissions.

3. What type of environmental concerns are there when recycling of a can with vinyl lining?
There are no specific environmental concerns regarding the recycling of a can with a vinyl lining.
