Food and Beverage Industry
At Purple Diamond, our food and beverage industry specific package testing capabilities focus on protection, containment, and storage to ensure products not only arrive unscathed to their destination, but can ultimately be handed off safely into the hands of the consumer with confidence. Our testing protocols are designed to ensure package integrity and product quality. Food and beverage package testing is the process of evaluating the packaging of food and beverages for its safety, quality and performance. The purpose of package testing is to ensure that the product inside the packaging remains intact and safe during transit, storage, and usage by consumers.
Package testing involves various techniques and tests, such as:
1. Physical testing: This includes testing packaging materials for their strength, durability, and resistance to puncture, tear, and compression.
2. Barrier testing: This includes testing the packaging for its ability to prevent oxygen, moisture, and other gases from entering or escaping the package, which can affect the quality and safety of the food or beverage inside.
3. Migration testing: This involves testing the packaging material for any chemicals that may migrate to the food or beverage, which can affect the product’s safety and taste.
4. Transportation testing: This involves simulating the transportation conditions and testing the packaging for its ability to withstand shocks, vibrations, and temperature fluctuations.
5. Shelf life testing: This involves testing the packaging and product for their ability to maintain quality and safety over time, including testing for spoilage, mold, and other forms of deterioration.
Overall, food and beverage package testing is critical to ensuring that products are safe, of high quality, and meet regulatory requirements.
There is not much we have not tested as far as the food industry goes. If you have a new product, or need the design of your current product’s package upgraded, please reach out to let us know so we can help. Reduce the amount of risks and costs in damages by having your packages tested before sending them out to the market for purchase. If not tested properly, once on the shelves, or even before then, for example a soda can will have dents in it. It becomes an even worse issue when multiple cans in a twelve can package have dents in them. This would be a major cause of concern for the consumer, not just because of the integrity of the can, but also because of the potential loss of the carbonation and taste consumers crave. Consider booking a complimentary consultation with a Food and Beverage Industry packaging engineer in order to best solve your current and pending issues surrounding your food and beverage packaging. No company is too big for us to package test, all you have to do is fill out the contact form on the contact page and we will get back to you as soon as possible to start the process.
