Container and Packaging Quality
Assessing ease of opening of mayonnaise caps.
Food containers and packaging play a vital role in maintaining quality, sometimes preserving content for months. Ease of use is another important factor in container and packaging design.
When designing containers, as well as considering content properties and composition, we envisage how containers will be handled during transport, placed on store shelves, and used in homes. We use a variety of methods to check container quality, including confirming that containers have been made according to design and cause no problems during actual usage. We collaborate with container and packaging manufacturers to assess functionality and safety, and strive to resolve issues and maintain and improve quality.
We identify and check container requirements and risks likely to arise during use.
Container thickness is measured precisely to assess whether it is sufficient to preserve quality and consistent across all portions.
We use red penetrant to check for minute seal defects and ensure containers seal properly.
Preserving Product Content
Containers are pressurized to assess the load they are capable of withstanding.
Products are drop-tested from heights equivalent to those encountered during freight-handling and shelf-stocking to assess them for deformation and breakage.
Safe and Pleasant User Experience
