Optimize Shelf Life and Assure Total Package Integrity

To compete in today’s global economy, food companies are increasing their focus on safety and quality.  Shelf-life limitations have a major impact on profitability and brand acceptance with the consumer. Spoilage can occur for a number of reasons:

  • Subjective approach to shelf-life estimation
  • Inadequate package integrity
    • Package Leaks
    • Seal Integrity
    • Proper Gas Mixtures 
  • Ingredient impurities and process contamination
  • Microbial spoilage

All can lead to product recalls and lost revenue.
