SPEED UP TIME TO MARKET WITH OUR STRATEGIC ADVICE
Pen & Tec have been advising clients on food chain legislation for over 20 years, working in close contact with all the key regulatory players in Europe (European Commission, European Food Safety Authority, European Union Reference Laboratory), as well as authorities on a national level. Our experience enables us to advise on the probability of meeting commercial targets from a regulatory perspective, cut time to market and speed up return on investment.
A COMMERCIAL APPROACH TO REGULATORY AFFAIRS
Research and development requires heavy investment, but an approval may be needed before food and feed innovations can be brought to market. However, regulatory requirements often stand in the way of taking products to market, slowing down time to positive cash flows. We can rapidly assess projects and commercial objectives, helping to outline available registration options and estimate the probability of meeting both regulatory and commercial targets, together with associated costs and timelines.
When handled correctly, the time it takes to bring a new product to market can be significantly reduced. We offer strategic advice on the fastest and most cost-effective registration pathways, enabling senior managers to make key business decisions to achieve a faster recuperation of investment. We also offer advice on broadening product usage or prolonging the lifetime of authorised products.
MANAGING THE REGISTRATION PROCESS
Registering a food or feed product can be a time consuming and challenging task. Managed in the right way, product registration can be achieved without setbacks.
Our regulatory experts can take overall project responsibility from initial stages of product development through to regulatory approval, ensuring a smooth evaluation process. Alternatively, we can support internal departments when time and resources are limited, so that your team can operate at maximum efficiency and meet corporate objectives and deadlines. We can also advise on applications that have run into difficulty, helping them get back on track to a successful approval.
Pen & Tec was founded in 2000 to help clients achieve European regulatory approvals. Since then, we have established a global network of associates, allowing us to offer regulatory advice on food and feed products in other leading global markets.
