Product shelf life From December 2019

Revised shelf-life evaluation guideline

Establishing an accurate shelf-life is key to a product’s success. The shelf-life should be sufficient to allow the product to be economically viable and minimise waste while maintaining key sensory, chemical and microbiological characteristics. It is therefore vital that the correct procedures are used when assessing shelf-life.

We teamed up with industry experts to update previous guidance on shelf-life evaluation, aligning it with recent changes such as the implementation of new EU microbiological criteria regulation and EU recommendations for setting a shelf-life.

This guideline is available to both members and non-members.
