FOOD

Food passes through many stages from the farm to the plate. Chemicals contribute at each stage to optimise the quality ultimately delivered to the consumer.

Providing Expert Data Insights to the Food Industry

We know the industry

The food industry is a consumer of chemicals to help improve taste, aroma and appearance. Additives are also used as preservatives to prevent spoiling or, conversely, to encourage fruit to ripen.

Other applications for chemicals and plastic resins include packaging intended for contact with food, often with controlled atmospheres or barrier properties for wrapping and containers to lengthen shelf life.
