Noluma is here to help.

Noluma’s services, using state-of-the-art technology, measure a product’s packaging for its ability to protect against exposure to both natural and artificial light. This patented technology allows us to simulate two weeks of high-intensity light exposure in only two hours, saving companies time and money in finding the optimal light-protected package design. As your product goes through our scientific measuring and assessment process, changes to content quality are closely tracked and measured, determining the light protection capacity of the packaging. Based on this, we provide guidance on optimizing light-protective packaging design ensuring your products are fully light-protected for quality, freshness and nutritional value.

Jersey Girls Dairy

November 28, 2018

Jersey Girls Dairy, LLC, a dairy farm in Chester, Vermont, partnered with Noluma to upgrade its packaging to protect its farm-fresh pasteurized milk against light exposure. Working with Noluma to launch a new bottle design, the two companies joined forces to educate the local community on light’s negative impacts on milk, and the power of light-protected packaging to prevent nutrient degradation. Through educational campaigns at local farmers’ markets during the summer of 2018 Jersey Girls demonstrated the benefits of light-protected dairy packaging, showing how it improves the overall quality of milk and maintains its fresh, wholesome taste through its full shelf life. Community locals could clearly see, smell and taste the difference of light-protected milk. The campaign resulted in Jersey Girls’ sales tripling a month into the launch, measurable quality improvements noted by consumers, and invitations for Jersey Girls to exhibit at Farm Shows throughout the country.

Dairy in the Dark with Freshways

June 26, 2019

In the UK, Noluma partnered with dairy supplier Freshways, bottling their milk in Noluma-certified packaging for the pop-up ‘Dairy in the Dark’ experience on London’s famous Portobello Road. UK parents, foodies, media and influencers were given the chance to experience what it was like to shop in the dark using night-vision goggles, and understand how light protection protects the nutrients and fresh taste of milk. Visitors got to taste light-protected milk for themselves with an on-site barista and took home a packaging test kit to test their own milk brand to see if it is light protected. They also were given a bottle of Freshways in a Noluma-certified light-protected bottle so they could taste for themselves the superior taste and freshness of light-protected milk. British milk is known for its superior quality and at Noluma we want to make sure that its delicious taste and nourishing goodness is protected in the right packaging so everyone can enjoy it at its best.

Lancaster Local

May 2, 2019

Noluma worked with Pennsylvania-based farming community Lancaster Local to support the design of light protected packaging for new organic milk with A2A2 protein.

The community of farmers in Lancaster, Pennsylvania produces Grade-A milk from local, grass-fed cows, and wanted Noluma-certified bottles to protect the milk’s overall quality, nutrient integrity and fresh taste for the full extent of the product’s shelf life.

Launching in the summer of 2019 in the Northeast region, Noluma and Lancaster Local will host events to raise awareness among consumers around light damage, and the availability of local milk that is protected from the degradation often caused by light.

Noluma White Paper: Packaged Foods Should Be Kept in the Dark, Consumers Shouldn’t Be

Light has the power to degrade food and packaged goods, but new research proves protective packaging can protect against damage from all light sources. Noluma published a white paper summarizing a variety of scientific research studies that evaluate the impact light has on packaged goods. Using the highest level of light protection in product packaging can preserve nutrients, freshness, stability, color, efficacy, performance, sensory and quality characteristics, and lead to an extended sensory shelf life for many products that reduces food waste.

Research Proves Performance Measurement Technology Accurately Measures Packaging’s Capacity to Block Light Damage

This scientific study finds that measurement technology can pinpoint the level of protection packaging provides against light. The technology uses a light exposure instrument that replicates intense light in a short period of time, and tracks changes to light sensitive nutrients within the packaging. This research shows that there are scientific processes for measuring the level of impact light has on a specific piece of packaging and the contents within.
