The visit from Dr. Brady Carter was extremely valuable to our technical team. He helped us gain a deeper understanding of how water activity relates to our specific products, how to correctly perform the tests and maintain our meters. We’ve been testing water activity for many years, but with his help, we will be able to use it more actively in both our product development and shelf life process. Dr. Carter was able to explain complex theories and calculations in a simple way and help us develop a practical action plan for our specific needs.
