At every stage in the food supply chain, maintaining hygiene, preventing spoilage and avoiding contamination are important priorities for processors, manufacturers and retailers. Protecting consumer health by testing for the presence of harmful micro-organisms 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 pathogens like Campylobacter, Listeria, Salmonella and E.coli amongst many more parameters, in our state-of-the-art laboratories around the globe.
Given the complexity of factors contributing to the shelf life of food, our experts can also offer a bespoke service which is tailor-made to the composition of your products, storage and packaging.
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.
Contaminants in food products can cause damage to the consumer as well as your brand's reputation. Manufacturers play an important role in this process and have a responsibility to follow guidelines and ensure consumer safety. Intertek understands these challenges 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.
