We are currently working with a global food and beverage company, who is looking to identify equipment, processes and methodologies which enable rapid, validated shelf-life testing methods.
This brief is seeking to improve the speed to market of a range of food and beverage products, that are sensitive to time, light and temperature. The products are long shelf life and product failures are related to quality rather than safety. Our client is looking to invest in the ‘best in class’ technology and supported by the latest techniques and methodologies.
The primary needs are:
- Details of suitable equipment for Shelf-Life Testing.
- Validated methods.
- Point of difference to other available equipment.
Processes and technologies at Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 7+ will be prioritised. However, those that can achieve TRL 9 within a 2-year horizon will be considered.
