All our packaging BPA free!15 February 2016
Good news about our bean and tomatoes. Since new crop production, the packaging of these products, such as cans and caps of glass jars and bottles are free of BPA. BPA is a substance which is regularly used in product packaging to ensure product quality and lifetime. However, this subastance has been contentious for the last couple of years, because of bad effects for health. To avoid any health risk, the producers of La BIO IDEA decides to pack all products exclusively into packaging which is free of BPA. Between the moment of production and sales in shops can be a couple of months, so it can be possible that one or two products are still available in packaging with BPA.
