Small appliances are composed of different materials and have a dynamic contact with foods: this can lead to critical issues for consumer’s health.
The team of Mérieux NutriSciences is able to assess and deal with such events through
• the assessment of conformity with European and international legislations of individual components through specific and global migration tests. Thanks to targeted studies, the interaction between materials and food and the presence of NIAS (Non-Intentionally Added Substances, namely the impurities resulting from the manufacturing processes) are evaluated;
• the study on food safety under usage conditions.
Moreover, product analyses are performed to check their compliance with REACH and Rohs Directives.

Most products, including detergents, waste and shopping bags made of compostable and biodegradable film, textiles, plastic materials, inks, paints and varnishes, can undergo chemical and physical changes during storage and use.
Research and development plays a key role in the industrial innovation process, which may consist of creating innovative products, replacing an existing product, or restyling an old product (e.g. packaging it in a different way).
As the provision of safety and quality services and environmentally friendly solutions is one of Mérieux NutriSciences’ founding values, we have a specific department dedicated to the study of these issues, comprising experts who participate in international committees on environmental sustainability.
Our mission is to serve as a partner to increase the added value of your products and to assist in the evaluation of safety and quality aspects, thus avoiding recalls and damage to your brand image and reputation.
