A new inhouse Berry Superfos material testing laboratory has obtained accreditation in the field of chemical testing and sampling of plastic products. This will ensure our customers faster reliable testing of raw materials for new food packaging and a high level of flexibility.

As a market leader, Berry Superfos has invested in an inhouse accredited testing laboratory for chemical testing of polymers. The laboratory, which opened recently, offers companies in the food industry comprehensive options when it comes to speedy quality testing of raw materials for new packaging solutions.

Josef Björck, COO of Berry Superfos, says:

“As raw material compositions get increasingly complex and we use more recycled materials for food packaging, efficient testing on time becomes even more vital than before. Our investment in the inhouse laboratory will enable our customers to get faster raw material testing to facilitate swift product development. Further by obtaining an accreditation, we can document to our customers that all tests are carried out according to international standards.”

Michał Kamiński, Divisional Regulatory Compliance Manager at Berry Superfos, says:

“Thanks to the laboratory’s expertise, we can now offer our customers accurate testing of raw materials for food product packaging as an integrated part of the development process. This gives our customers quicker lead time in new product development. According to the needs of individual customers, we can even establish and maintain customer-tailored testing plans. And in case of claims related to food safety, we can make initial assessments much faster than previously.”

A service to Berry Superfos customers globally

The laboratory’s accreditation audit took place in the summer of 2021, an audit that the laboratory passed with flying colours. It is staffed by scientists, compliance specialists and technicians and located in Lubień, Poland offering services to Berry Superfos customers globally.

At the moment, the laboratory offers seven different accredited testing methods and is capable of performing product and material tests of overall migration in water-based simulants as well as in olive oil by filling or immersion.

Currently, the laboratory is planning to double its capacity for testing overall migration and for developing methodologies for specific migration.
