Abstract

The term ‘shelf life’ is generally understood to be the duration of that period, between packing a product and using it, for which the quality of the product remains acceptable to the product user. An attempt to predict this period from data on the product, the pack and the distribution and storage conditions is appropriate where alternative packaging materials are available which make positive yet potentially differing contributions to the extension of the usable life of the contents.
