Shelf-life simulation

We use mathematical models to predict the shelf-life of your products. We then develop strategies for packaging optimization – also with regard to the recyclability of packaging.

We work together with you to develop high-quality food products and safe, effective, and convenient packaging. With utmost respect for nature and people, we put priority on the efficient use of raw materials and the minimization of any environmental impact.

In addition to the food and packaging industries, other sectors such as packaging and processing machinery construction, the chemical industry, the pharmaceutical and cosmetics sectors, and the agricultural industry benefit from our expertise and the technologies we develop.

The continuous support we provide ensures your technological advantage and your economic success.

Our Services



We develop healthy, high-quality foods, including gluten-free, low salt, and vegan products, and also provide assistance with the quality assurance of food products.


We develop multilayer films and packaging systems and offer a wide range of services relating to quality assurance, including migration testing.

Processing Machinery

We analyze and optimize packaging machinery and cleaning processes used in the food and pharmaceutical industries and also for packaging material production.

Product Performance

We help you develop products which optimally meet the sensory needs of consumers. Your products benefit from enhanced consumer acceptance.

Recycling and Environment

We offer you with a solvent-based recycling process for recovering pure polymers. We also carry out environmental analyses and help you replace fossil raw materials with plant-based materials.
