Hello arctic and welcome to the IFSQN. When you use the word "migration" in confuses me. These day's migration testing of food packaging is a whole different ball-game and is scientific chemical analysis conducted by an accredited laboratory to defined EU regulations.
What you are doing is taste and odour testing to see if the packaging taints your product.
If the packaging is purchased as suitable for your product and process to an agreed specification and you have conducted perhaps initial validation tests then why do you need ongoing tests? Have you had problems? What do you find? What kind of taint? What is your product?
Maybe you can reduce the frequency or get rid of it altogether.
