Manufactuting and testing of products for food contact is often handled as a necessity due to legislative requirements or market demands.
With Fit for Food we challenge our customers to take control and turn product development and testing into a competitive advantage.
Fit for Food is an active way of creating new sales opportunities by adding value to existing processes, to customers and ultimately to the company’s bottom line.
Working with food contact materials can be a complicated matter. With Fit for Food you leave it all to us
For better budget planning we can even offer to make a cost split to ensure that the costs are fixed per year.
In an initial meeting we discuss the possible use of the label, estimate the resulting costs, address rights and duties of each involved party, and initiate the project.
We use your list of all raw materials used and their suppliers to obtain current data sheets for food contact. Based on this, we make product groups and generate a test plan. In parallel, we need to make sure your production facility is set up to deliver continuous quality suitable for food contact. This is proven by an existing certification according to either BRC for packaging, FSSC 22000, IFS Pacsecure or SQF
Your samples are analysed by us, in an accredited Eurofins labs for all relevant parameters that have been determined.
The complete set of test results, certifications and supporting documents will be reviewed. With all tests passed, we complete a contract to issue the ‘Fit for Food’-certificate for a period of 5 years.
The certification will be validated yearly by a reveiw of product documentation and a random sample screening analysis for internal validation
