Eurofins Scientific celebrates 30th Anniversary

Eurofins Scientific was founded in 1987 as a small start-up with just four employees, based on the SNIFNMR ® method developed by Dr. G. and M. Martin at the University of Nantes in France. The method was used initially to detect the addition of sugar during winemaking to increase its alcohol content, called chaptalisation.
In 2017, Eurofins is 30 years young, and we believe that’s a good reason to celebrate. We’re recognising what we’ve achieved over the past three decades and the difference we make every day. We’re paying tribute to all the remarkable people who have contributed to our success story. And we’re celebrating the vision of a healthy and safe life for everyone on earth.
Over the last 10 years, Eurofins has donated to many charities around the world. As a Group, we support various social projects and charitable works throughout the year as part of our continuous commitment to contribute to the improvement of health and protection of the environment.
On the occasion of this 30th Anniversary, Eurofins has also decided to donate 1 million Euro on behalf of all employees to 40 charitable organisations across all continents. These charities have been chosen because their work is consistent with Eurofins’ DNA: better nutrition, improved health, protecting the environment, social entrepreneurship and supporting local communities.
Today, Eurofins Scientific has grown to become a leading international Group of laboratories, providing a unique range of analytical testing services to the bio/ pharmaceutical, food, environmental and consumer products industries and to governments with more than 30,000 employees and 400 sites in 41 countries.
