Food Safety: Chemical

We help ensure chemicals in food and consumer products are safe for human consumption.

Challenges We Solve

  • Challenge: Difficulty optimising chemical concentrations.
    Solution: Our models can help risk assessors in gaining more insights about the main risk factors, that is, which foods and products are the main contributors to the total exposure. This helps companies make decisions on how to mitigate risk in an efficient manner.
  • Challenge: Manage the overall safety of chemicals and allergens in your company’s product portfolio.
    Solution: Our models can be expanded to work with your entire product portfolio.
  • Challenge: Developing a consistent exposure methodology across different chemical groups.
    Solution: Models are developed according to the regulatory standards operating procedures.
  • Challenge: A chemical company or exposure expert is unsure about the impact of pesticide usage in a food or residential products.
    Solution: Simulate dietary and residential scenarios on different time-frames and populations and compare the results with toxicology limits. Scenarios are based on US EPA designed, tested and approved models.
  • Challenge: Compliance with global regulators.
    Solution: Our tools are already used by regulators in the US and EU.
  • Challenge: A competent authority is unsure of who are most at risk of exceeding exposure limits are.
    Solution: Bespoke analysis can determine intakes per age, sex, health status, including pregnancy, and easily identify who are the high consumers with the highest exposures.
  • Challenge: Access to and usage of data.
    Solution: Different databases (NHANES, PDP, REJV) combined into a unique platform and tool that provide an easy way to access the data and combined them together. We also have tools that help with gathering data.
