Food Safety: Packaging

We use cutting-edge modelling data and cloud computing to develop safer products faster and more cost-effectively than ever before.

Problems We Solve

Using a worst case scenario methodology creates unrealistic results.

Solution: Simulate actual presence in a probabilistic manner to reflect actual consumer habits & practices.

Access to data.

Solution: Access to our cleaned data. Nationally representative consumption data from the US, EU, China, Brazil, Mexico, etc. Data on chemical concentration/ occurrence.

A product company is unsure about the impact of ingredient/additive usage in a product or packaging material.

Solution: Simulate a bespoke scenario with and without the usage and compare the two.

 A competent authority is unsure of who are most at risk of exceeding exposure limits.

Solution: Bespoke analysis can determine intakes per age, sex, BMI, health status including pregnancy and smoking. Analysis can easily identify who are the high risk consumers with the highest exposures.

Collection of data to understand how chemicals are used.

Solution: We have extensive experience collecting data. An example is the FACET project where we collected packaging/food contact material, flavourings and additives data from multiple stakeholders in the food supply chain including occurrences and concentrations to calculate exposure in EU consumers.

Working out consumer exposure to chemicals based on their uses (e.g. adhesives, plastics etc).

Solution: Our models simulate exposure based on natural survey data and collected data.
