Shelf life refers to the period, under specified storage conditions, during which food remains safe and retains its desired sensory, chemical, physical, and biological characteristics as well as adheres to any “date marking” declarations. The need to extend food shelf-life quality is a growing global concern, driven by consumers' increasing reliance on convenient processed foods and manufacturers' desire to expand their business globally.

Handary has innovated natural shelf-life approaches by integrating experimental studies on shelf-life testing with the use of sustainable active ingredients. This approach encompasses two distinct business divisions: Shelf-life Testing Division and Shelf-life Solution Division, which are as follows:

Two Shelf-life Business Divisions:

Shelf-life Testing Division

“We thoroughly examine food products to assess their quality and safety, considering their sensory, microbiological, chemical, and physical properties. This helps us understand the factors affecting their shelf-life.

Using the gathered data, we develop accurate 'date marking' guidelines for food products to ensure compliance with local regulations.

Additionally, we evaluate and verify the effectiveness of food shelf-life ingredients in extending the shelf-life of food products.”
