I came across an intriguing article today about some changes going on at Whole Foods. They've created a shift in their products to push materials that are more recyclable or have a higher content of post consumer recycled material.

Do you supply Whole Foods? If so, how will it impact your business?

Over the weekend I received an email from a customer asking about seal quality testing. You can do a lot for your quality control process with our cap inspction system and ensuring you have applied adequate application torque to the closure.

However, you can take it to another level. Liquid products lend themselves well to testing systems from the likes of Teledyne Tap Tone and others. In my search to find some statistical analysis of seal quality, I came across this paper which talks in great detail about ways to test seal quality.
