SGS Opens New Food Laboratory in US
February 20, 2014
SGS has invested in a new FDA registered, ISO 17025 accredited Food Laboratory in Fairfield, New Jersey to meet growing demand for food testing services.
Set within SGS’ existing Consumer Products Laboratory, this state-of-the-art facility delivers the critical support services required from a laboratory partner: access to technical experts and the latest microbiological and analytical equipment, friendly customer service, rapid turn-around times that reduce time to market and sample pick-up. Plus, clients gain access to SGS’ global testing, audit and certification services, and integrated IT solutions.
“Food safety issues are never far from the headlines, increasing demand for food testing,” said Michael Zhu, VP Food North America. “SGS’ investment establishes reliable third party testing facilities in New Jersey, providing the northeast region with easy access to fast, efficient, reliable food safety services.”
