Our team of Shelf-Life Studies and Packaging Solutions at TFTAK helps to assess the stability of food products during storage. We conduct product shelf-life testing in real-life conditions, as well as accelerated shelf-life studies to obtain the estimations in the fastest possible time period. Our shelf-life testing facilities enable us to modify storage temperature, humidity, and light.

To estimate the shelf life of MRE-s (Meals Ready-to-Eat) with a usual shelf life of around 5 years we use accelerated shelf-life studies that can determine quality changes in a product over a 10-month period. In addition to accelerated shelf-life testing used to monitor physical and chemical changes, real-time shelf-life analysis also allows us to determine the microbiological quality parameters of food products.

Alongside this we can help to find the best packaging solutions for your food products, including the appropriate packaging materials and environments (MAP, vacuum, active packaging).

Our shelf life and packaging team can help you with the following services:

  • Shelf-life studies using accelerated and real-time methods
  • Packaging material selection
  • Packaging environment selection
Let us innovate together!
