Food & Drink

The food and drink sectors are one of the largest consumers (by volume) of manufactured glass products and almost all of these products are intended for the domestic consumer.

As such, this is one of the sectors most concerned with product quality, contamination and failure - with chemical compliance, fitness-for-purpose and food contact requirements being paramount.

Our involvement across the food and drinks sectors.

Our specialist knowledge in glass, equipment and capabilities allow us to provide a comprehensive range of services to help ensure that the quality and performance credentials of glass primary packaging and that food contact materials meet all applicable regulatory and regional standards.

Working with designers at the pre-prototype stage, our experts help ensure that the performance of a product, and the requirements laid down by regulations and standards are met, while still allowing true innovation in the creation of the aspirational and unique designs that brands rightly demand in order to make their product stand out from the crowd and get noticed by the target consumer – or to serve novel or special applications.

In the rare situation that a glass product does fail in the marketplace, or a foreign body is a thought to be found within a product, then we also provide analytical and investigative services - available on urgent turnaround - to enable our clients to make informed decisions as to the validity of such complaints and the suitable action to be taken should an issue be confirmed. Expert witness support is also available should a scenario escalate to legal action.
