Contamination of food products cause damage to the consumer and a brands reputation. Manufacturers play an important role in this process and have a responsibility to follow guidelines and ensure consumer safety. 

Intertek understands these problems and through our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and testing methods we can help you with a range of  Microbiological, Physical and Chemical contamination needs including mycotoxins, heavy metals and process contaminants such as acrylamide and dioxins.

At every stage in the food supply chain maintaining hygiene, preventing spoilage and avoiding contamination are important priorities for manufacturers. Protecting consumer health by testing for the presence of harmful microorganisms in your food and seafood products can be achieved with reliable microbiology testing.

Our team of world-class microbiologists use cutting-edge technology to test for the presence of Campylobacter, Listeria, Salmonella, E.coli and many more parameters in our state-of-the-art laboratories around the globe.

Whilst the responsible use of pesticides, fungicides and herbicides can help to bolster crop resistance to disease and pests as well as increase yields, the overuse or use of forbidden pesticides can lead to the accumulation of harmful chemical residues.

We provide expert trace residue analysis services, helping to ensure your products meet the required standards. From our own state-of-the-art facilities we provide fast and accurate screening to detect, identify and quantify the presence of antibiotics, veterinary drugs and pesticides.

Greater consumer demand for product information means that food labelling requirements are becoming increasingly stringent around the globe. Falling short of legislation in their target market can have negative consequences for food operators placing food products onto the market.

Our label validation services and nutritional labelling cover aspects such as full nutritional analysis for nutritional claim to layout, language and updates on regulatory changes, preparing you for trouble-free expansion into international markets.

There are a number of water related issues, such as the presence of legionella bacteria, which can cause a significant risk to public health and exposure can lead to serious illness.

For such a critical service, you need a partner you can trust. With our experience, expertise and cutting-edge facilities, you can be sure that you’re fulfilling your duty of cares and fully complying with safety guidelines. We can assist with general microbiological and chemical testing to ensure your water meets with local water regulations.

Our experts can help you with a variety of challenges from food contact materials, shelf life testing, allergens, meat species analysis, food fraud, GMO detection and sensory analysis.
