Analysis of food packaging for coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2)

In Qingdao, China, coronavirus was recently detected on the outer packaging of imported frozen cod. This contamination is suspected to be responsible for the increased incidence of SARS-CoV-2 in the port city. So far, no infection has been confirmed through contact with frozen food packaging, but Chinese producers and importers of frozen goods in China are called upon to be particularly vigilant.

Analysis of food contact materials

Our WESSLING experts for the safety of food contact materials and food accompany the food industry with laboratory analysis for SARS-CoV-2 on surfaces. Our experts work according to the recommendations of the World Health Organisation (WHO).

In the meantime, various studies have shown that the virus can survive for several days on steel and glass at low temperatures. It is therefore urgently necessary to review the effectiveness of hygiene measures in companies. With the help of our sampling set relevant work surfaces and equipment, computer workstations and of course outer packaging of any kind can be sampled. We provide you with a complete sampling set with detailed step-by-step instructions in advance.

You will receive the analysis results from us as early as 24 to 48 hours after we receive your sample. This enables you to adapt or extend any necessary measures promptly.

If you wish to further optimise existing measures, our experts are also available to you for consultation. We will support you in implementing the German Federal Government's COVID 19 occupational health and safety standard or the specifications of the operational pandemic planning of the German Federal Office for Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK). In addition, our experts will be happy to answer your individual questions on hygiene and cleaning concepts.
