Consumers demand safe food.
Food Safety and Quality Control
There has been a shift in food safety where there is now a focus on preventing food safety problems before they occur rather than reacting to the issue at hand after they occur. This proactive approach has provided the FDA with new enforcement authority designed to achieve higher rates of compliance with prevention- and risk-based food safety standards.
This new food safety system, or the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), requires mandatory preventative controls for food facilities and new mandatory standards for safe harvesting and production of fruits and vegetables. These new standards require food testing by a laboratory to ensure safety of food products.
We offer a wide range of microbial contamination screening utilizing both genetic and culture methods. Our scientists have years of experience working with different pathogens and food types and can assist you on assuring your food is free of biological contaminants.
We offer services to help ensure that your facility meets the standards of good manufacturing practices. Our team can assist with Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point Plans (HACCP). These services help through the analysis and control of biological and chemical contaminants from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product.
A major concern in food safety is the contamination of toxic chemicals in the food we eat, whether from natural sources, manufacturing practices, or unintentionally introduced contamination. We offer a wide range of services as well as custom services that will help your company assure your food products are safe to consume.
