Instruments for the Analysis of Food and Feed
Sterilization & Pasteurization
We test and validate your products
Have your products tested, regardless of your packaging type.
The Terra Food Tech autoclaves can sterilize and pasteurize all kinds of products in packaging such as:
- Glass bottles / jars
- Canned goods
- Leak-proof plastic bags or containers
What can we do for you?
In Belgium, it is mandatory to mention the expiration date on pre-packaged food products. But how do you determine the expiration date of your product?
That’s where BRUCEFO, the Brussels centre for food expertises, comes in.
Cooked products, including milk drinks for example, must be either sterilized or pasteurized
If you haven’t made the choice yet, we can help you find the answer to this important question: “Should my product be sterilized or pasteurized?“
Then, according to your requests, we will perform the necessary microbiological tests to determine the best-before date of your product.
We test your samples in your packaging!
