Consumer Goods

Growing quality expectations on the part of retailers and consumers also mean that higher demands are being placed on raw materials and products. This is intensified by a growing international interdependence and fact that requirements for consumer goods are not yet fully harmonised.

SGS INSTITUT FRESENIUS, as an accredited laboratory service provider, assists manufacturers, distributors and suppliers of consumer goods in all matters aimed at safeguarding product quality.

We work on the product fields of hygiene paper, feminine hygiene products, toys and other items that come into contact with food, oral mucous membranes or, temporarily, with the human body.
