Functional and Safe Food Contact Materials in the Food Production

Project Details


DTU national food institute will like to add to the development of new food contact materials in the food production. In cooperation with industry and other research institutions it is our aim to add to the production and use of functional and safe materials to increase chemical and microbial food safety and to reduce waste of food within the food production.

We do chemical characterization and chemical safety assessment of the materials.

The research group has many years of experience within chemical analysis and migration testing of food contact materials and the laboratory is well equipped with the aim to do analysis for known chemicals and food contaminants as well as screening analysis for unknowns. We are experts within the EU legislation in the area and are active members of the EU referencelaboratories.
