Investigating Contact Materials and Contaminants in Foods

Food contamination is a major threat to consumer safety. The prevention of contamination during food production is crucial for manufacturers to comply with the relevant regulations and ensuring customer satisfaction. Contacting materials and various leeching effects during food packaging can result in contaminated products. To prevent such issues, Dr. Malcolm Driffield provide a brief description of food contact materials, migration of these materials and identification of potential contaminants using LC-MS or GC-MS instruments.

Dr. Malcolm Driffield

Fera Science

Malcolm leads a team that carries out projects involving food contact materials (FCMs) and migration. The majority of his work involves managing the delivery of research and development projects involving non-targeted analysis using state-of-the-art equipment, with a particular focus on investigations into the determination (identification and quantification) of non-intentionally added substances (NIAS). One of the main aims of the team is to make the complicated process of NIAS determination more efficient and in sync with customer requirements and regulatory demands.
