In the wake of the pandemic, Anacon Laboratories- Central India’s largest testing lab ensures safe food packaging with their ‘shelf-life testing

Healthcare centers around the country are bracing themselves to tackle the disruption caused by the second wave of Covid-19. Apart from healthcare, various sectors are experiencing a paradigm shift in the way they work. Even the food industry is experiencing a significant change in the way their products are being consumed, stored, and managed. Post-pandemic, people out of fear are purchasing more and more packaged & shelf-stable food items. Since the consumer at this point is paying less attention towards the ‘storage conditions of food,’ Anacon Laboratories have sensed a fear of threat lingering over the lives of people who are accessing food that is improperly packed & stored.

Every food item comes with its own shelf life. And only through proper shelf-life testing, the food item can reveal its lifespan, and help in determining under what storage temperatures and packaging can the product survive before deteriorating.

The scientists of Anacon Laboratories understand that every food product is unique, their study guarantees a sound and accurate shelf-life determination. Their team considers a variety of factors when setting up the testing protocol for a given study.

 “Almost every citizen of India is facing the aftermath of coronavirus, it breaks my heart even further when I see scarcity of food and people consuming contaminated food. As many people are inclined towards stocking up their food, I urge food manufacturers to take extra efforts while packing their food and conduct a shelf-life test before they hit the shelves.” Dr. Garvey, founder of Anacon Laboratories.

Since 1993, Anacon Laboratories has maintained a strong foothold in the field of analytical Shelf-Life Testing. Their focus of shelf-life testing is primarily based on ingredients present in the product, as well as its packaging, processing, and storage details. They ensure to provide an objective measure of the quality factors that define the food and the point at which the food becomes unfit and unhealthy for consumers. The shelf-life testing scientists perform physical, chemical, microbiological, or sensory testing on every food item that is sent to the Anacon Laboratories.
