Consumer protection is becoming increasingly important throughout the whole of Europe. Consequently, the legal requirements in regard to quality assurance in the production and use of food have become much more stringent in the last few years. Food producers and food retailers integrate extended quality assurance measures into their operating processes. These include both analytical tests and also the implementation of hygiene and quality management systems.
As an accredited partner, SGS INSTITUT FRESENIUS offers fast and competent assistance in all analytical and hygiene-relevant issues concerning food, animal food, nutritional supplements and organic products.
