Ensuring product quality is the cornerstone of a robust quality assurance program. Regarding food and consumer goods, the focus is often on tests that measure how closely a product aligns with specific standards. While some of these tests fall under analytical testing, most can be classified as physical and defect testing. Food Physical Testing laboratories specialize in quantifying the distinctive features of a product and capturing crucial metrics such as defects or the number of unusable products per case.
Enhance Your Product's Success: Benchmarking and Beyond
Food physical testing can also be utilized to gauge a product's performance against its rivals, a process known as benchmarking. By conducting head-to-head comparisons using a range of physical tests, distinct points of differentiation can be identified. These unique characteristics can then be optimized to craft exceptional, award-winning products.
