In today’s global marketplace, retailers, manufacturers
and distributors of consumer products that come into contact with food face
unique challenges in assessing the quality of their goods, complying with
regulations and meeting industry best practices.
Consumers expect that the products they purchase will be
safe. However, there is increasing concern over what is being leached into
food. Substances such as phthalates in plastic containers or unsafe levels of
heavy metals in cookware, pose a potential risk from which the consumer expects
to be protected. Therefore, companies need to ensure they sell safe products in
order to minimise the risk of liability, costly returns and brand-damaging product
To comply with domestic and international safety and
quality requirements for materials and articles in contact with food, you need
an experienced service provider that can evaluate your products to European
Directives, specific national requirements and other industry guidelines.
Bureau Veritas can identify analytical requirements,
performance criteria and evaluate physical characteristics, construction and
workmanship. We conduct migration testing to assess the transfer of substances
to foodstuffs; we can also perform sensory testing (for undesirable transfer of
odours and taste to foodstuffs).
