Food analysis and testing
Fera's food analytical testing services are underpinned by scientific expertise, detailed knowledge of current and emerging regulations, and internationally recognised quality standards.
All of our food analysis work is carried out in modern laboratories by highly trained scientific staff, using state-of-the-art analytical equipment.
In addition to the food testing services mentioned below we have accredited analytical capabilities to test foodstuffs for the presence and quantity of other contaminant substances, for example artificial sweeteners and preservatives. We are the National Reference Laboratory for many areas.
