It is the manufacturer's responsibility to assign a shelf-life for each product that is produced. Even if predictive mathematical models have been used to give a firm idea of the shelf-life of a product, a laboratory based determination of microbiological activity within a food over time will still often be necessary.
Product is stored under the required storage conditions and tested at suitable time points for relevant organisms. In addition Campden BRI offers a complete shelf life evaluation service which can also incorporate sensory and chemical analysis. Product can also be produced and/or packaged on site in our process hall.
If you would like further information about shelf–life testing please email us at email@example.com or call our switchboard on +44(0)1386 842000 and they will be happy to direct your call to the relevant person.
