Packaging analysis and testing

Packaging analysis and testing

Is your packaging fit for purpose? Different types of packaging are used for different reasons.

Plastics need to have the correct gas and water vapour permeabilities. Metal packaging needs the appropriate tin or lacquer layer. Multilaminate structures need to be of the correct thickness.

Campden BRI expertise covers these and many other packaging issues. We have extensive facilities for microscopic examination of packaging, as well as for determining the transfer of its components into the food, and assessing its susceptibility to microbial contamination.
