Creme Global provide cutting edge models and services for the estimation and evaluation of substances migrating from plastic polymers.
Materials may be sources of contamination in foods as a result of substances migrating from plastic polymers. Here at Creme Global, we provide migration and exposure models that are available to be used to estimate levels of migration from plastics and any subsequent exposure to a given consumer population. For more complex problems we offer bespoke model building tailored to your foods/materials of interest as well as professional services in this area.
As the technology partner in the renowned FACET project, as well as many other off-shoots of FACET and consultancy projects on the area of food contact, Creme Global have the required skills and experience to provide a scientifically sound assessment of your products’ safety.
The core of the migration model was created by Creme Global and was first used in FACET 3.0.2.; The version of FACET that has been available on the website of the Joint Research Center since April 2017. It simulates migration from a polymer into a food over time.
Benefits of modelling migration
In European regulation, migration limits are expressed as a concentration (mg/kg) in food, however, in the USA, limits are expressed as population exposure. The assessment of a food contact material’s safety in terms of exposure in a population requires another layer of complexity in the form of consumption data and the association of migration levels with consumption data. This is also a core expertise held here at Creme Global.
Benefits of modelling exposure
12 of the top 15 food companies, 7 of the top 10 cosmetics and personal care companies, and 6 of the top 10 chemicals companies use our software to better understand their products and their impact on consumers.
Governments use our software to aid in creating regulations and in communicating with industry on safety. Our platforms give a shared point of reference.
Academia use our software to greatly increase the speed and viability of research projects into food safety, nutrition and human health. Our platforms are flexible, allowing for a broad range of applications in research.
