At BVAQ, all our laboratories offer shelf life testing of food products to help manufacturers to help food manufacturers comply with statutory or commercial requirements by verifying that products display the appropriate “use by” and/or “best before” date(s).
Food products must meet national and international food hygiene regulations relating to shelf life. This helps to keep consumers safe and your organisation compliant, both of which contribute to maintaining your brand’s integrity and reputation.
Our food testing laboratories work with each product throughout its shelf life, combining a suite of procedures including microbial indicator analysis, as well as sensory, physical and chemical testing to determine the appropriate shelf life. Our shelf life testing service can assist your business not only to recognise how your food product performs over time, but also aid in identifying changes in processing parameters which could increase the performance of your product and provide significant business benefits.
Our Technical Specialist Team can assist in tailoring appropriate testing solutions depending on your product, regulatory requirements and safety concerns. BVAQ are here to provide solutions to meet your business needs, and to enable to you stay ahead of your customer’s demands.
