Understanding what constitutes the end of shelf life for your product is an important quality decision. We can assist companies to determine the shelf life endpoint and how to achieve a shelf life you desire by modifying the product formulation, production process and/or packaging.

We can assist with:

  • Shelf life calculations
  • Shelf life studies
  • Shelf life extension
  • Product, process and packaging development to achieve specific shelf life objectives
