How We Extend Shelf-life

Shelf life is defined as the time, under defined storage conditions, during which food remains safe, retains desired sensory, chemical, physical and biological characteristics as well as complies with any label declaration.

How to extend food shelf-life quality is a growing worldwide concern – for consumers who rely increasingly on convenient processed food; for manufacturers seeking to expand their business presence globally.

Handary created the first brand in natural shelf-life solutions by combining the experimental studies of shelf life diagnosis and natural sustainable active ingredients to predictedly extend the shelf-life quality that contributs to tackle food waste.

A 5-step shelf-life process approch was employed to support this overall solution.

Identify Influencing Shelf-life Factors
Step 1.
Identify influencing shelf-life factors including Microbiological, Chemical, Physical and Temperature-related deterioration.
3 Microbial identifiers
Predict Shelf-life
Step 2.
Predict the time of shelf-life through the intervention among multi-hurdle factors:
• pH
• Water activities (aw)
• Temperature (T)
• Redox (Eh)
• Active Ingredients
