Comprehensive range of services for validating processes and hygiene practices and ensuring the accuracy of shelf-life claims.

Food brand reputations are reliant on good hygiene practices and the accuracy of the claims being made on product packaging. We test for physical, chemical and microbiological contaminants that could adulterate your food and compromise your brand’s reputation.

Cleaning Validation: a range of testing and support services to help you ensure the delivery of safe and compliant food products. Our experts will assess and validate your environmental monitoring and cleaning regimes, ensuring equipment and the production environment remain safe and free from contaminants.

Process Validation: regulations around the world are being revised to mandate an increased focus on validated microbial control points at food and ingredient manufacturing facilities. We can assist you in designing and implementing a science-based approach to validation.

Shelf Life Studies: recognize how your food product performs over time, monitoring how changes to ingredients, packaging and other contributory factors may lengthen shelf life and reduce food waste.
