What is Package Integrity or Package Integrity Testing & Why Does it Matter?

"Package integrity testing has been acknowledged to
be an important tool for ensuring the safety of package
systems and the products they protect."

Package Integrity is simply put, a barrier to physical, microbiological or chemical challenges.


Package integrity is a sub‐ category of quality and usually includes the testing of leak, seal strength, burst, permeability of the barrier (for light, oxygen, water vapor), and visual inspections or in summary, should really include whole package testing.


Packaging experiences a number of potentially damaging forces from production until it lands on the shelf. This means that it is vital to test your package in real-world conditions to ensure a package with the highest integrity.

Package integrity testing, either by itself or as an adjunct to other traditional testing methods, is helping designers, brand owners, and manufacturers deliver safe products both quickly and cost-effectively. It even helps to extend shelf life in most instances, giving you the precise data required to ensure you don't under or over package which ensures you the best shelf life possible.
