Interest in the processing of crops has increased since legal stipulations became more stringent 

With the demands of EU, OECD, CEB, OEPP, EPPO and AFNOR guidelines on compliance to GLP and GEP rules becoming ever more stringent, there is now more emphasis on this type of study.

NEW! The Processing Team have recently developed a new technique: production of sugar from sugar beet

In response, Eurofins Agroscience Services has developed in house expertise:

  • Experienced staff
  • Compiling process-related documentation
  • GLP quality assurance
  • Implementation of GEP studies
  • Assigned food technologists for monitoring the food processing phase
  • Taint testing on final processed or fresh products.
  • Sample shipping under controlled conditions
  • Evaluation and reporting of results

This provides a unique strength; a link between field, food processing and analytical phase. Our laboratory processes follow industrial procedures - EAS is confident that it can fulfil all your food processing study requirements.
