Consumers expect that the products they purchase will be safe from hazardous substances, particularly for products that are intended for contact with mouth or products that come into contact with food / drink.
Any materials or articles that come into contact with food have the potential to contain chemicals or metals, or contaminants that could be leached into food. This includes any kinds of plasticware, glassware, ceramics, cutlery, crockery, and any types of food containers or packaging. The same applies for corporate premiums or party items which aren't produced for food contact which have or could have contact with the mouth, e.g. whistles, balloons, etc.
The implementation of effective product development and quality monitoring programs, plus services such as testing, inspections, and consumer evaluations, can help you improve customer satisfaction, lower costs, reduce customer complaints, and increase competitiveness.
