Pack Testing Course

Nobody wants product wastage, least of all in transit between production and store, where damage to packs and product results in delay, claim, expense and huge inconvenience. Making sure that your packaging will survive the distribution channel and deliver your product intact and in perfect condition to the consumer is a fundamental part of the job, isn’t it?

This one-day course will help delegates select packaging which is fit for purpose - getting products to the customer safely, securely and cost-effectively. Including: what to test and how to test it, how to set a specification, the issues surrounding specific materials, sampling your production, where to find the right test methods and how to make the most appropriate tests for your products.

Delegates can expect to take away a clear understanding of the importance of proper pack testing and a toolbox to help them apply what they have learned to their own production and distribution situation - saving waste, improving delivery and increasing profits.
