Testing, expert opinions and consultancy on packaging

OFI's experts will find the right answer to any question arising with regard to food and packaging production. We pay particular attention to material quality, packaging processes, transport, safety of packaged goods and furthermore, to quick, practical solutions. Packaging of food, non-food articles, pharmaceutical products, cosmetics and many other products has to meet specific requirements, which have to be taken into account in each individual case.
