Packaging Analyses

a&t food control laboratory ensures protection of human health through packaging analyses.

Packaging is a tool that ensures the food substance placed inside reaches the end consumer at the maximum safety level with optimum costs starting with the moment it is manufactured including transportation, storage and marketing.

Packaging technology follows all of the developments introduced in the food industry for processing and protection methods.

The packaging which is supposed to protect the food from physical, chemical and microbiological effects throughout the shelf life has to be ecologically compliant in terms of repeatability and usage. As the food itself, packaging and surrounding environment are considered as a whole, packaging selected and used has to be controlled for compliance with legislation and standards.

We render services for the industry with the examinations and analyses where we observe the substances and materials that come into contact with the food for the purposes of food safety.

Our laboratory which conducts business as accredited in accordance with ISO 17025 system, carries out total migration tests in accordance with the regulations and under the utilization temperature and storage conditions of food packages and appropriate test conditions using aqueous, oily and acidic food similars.

a&t food control laboratory has a significant experience in the characterization of packaging materials owing to Fourier Transform Infra- red (FT-IR) spectroscopy which it uses to obtain the original spectrums of different material characteristics.

All sample batches are subject to quality control measurements to guarantee the accuracy of the data. a&t displayed accomplished z-scores for the nutritional value analyses of various food samples during the competence tests it has participated in over the recent years.
