Safety through and through
When it comes to safety, we don’t take any chances. Ever. Safety not only coats everything we do, it runs through it, too.In the food and beverage industry, reputations are hard won and easily lost.
Product recalls, for whatever reason, can be hugely expensive and are invariably deeply damaging. It can take years for a business to recover.
So, when it comes to safety, we don’t take any chances. Ever. Everything we do is coated in safety.
We want to lead our industry away from materials of concern and regrettable substitutions that can cause their own problems, replacing them with new technologies and solutions that will stand up to scrutiny for years to come.
That’s why we’re continually scouring the scientific landscape for new developments in toxicology and materials science.
We’re also keeping a close eye on the regulators. If they’re planning new rules, we want to ensure our customers are already ahead of the curve and won’t be disrupted.
Typically, it can take us between 5 and 10 years of research and 2 years of development to create a new product. The reason it takes so long? We have safety checks at every step. And that’s not all. We then have a further year of safety testing to turn our innovation into a proven, safe solution.
We research and analyse new materials and chemistries, comparing them against known safety data. We invite
independent third parties and regulators to run scientific analysis and toxicity reviews. And we submit everything for regulatory body approval and third-party certification.
Fit for the Real World
Of course, what works in the lab may not work in the real world, and this is where our customers and suppliers play a vital role; they help us understand how our materials will behave when put to work. How will they be manufactured? How stable are they? What’s their shelf-life?
By answering these questions and many more, we’re shaping change to deliver safer and more effective packaging coatings solutions for the food and beverage industry.
