Food Environmental Monitoring Program

Food Environmental Monitoring Program

Make your Food Environmental Monitoring Program (EMP) be the best way to assess the environment of your facility. Let it work for you to control the potential for contamination in your manufacturing processes.

Monitoring of food manufacturing environment is a vital part of a complete quality program. Many incidents of contamination and recall can be traced back to a food manufacturer’s failure to have a sound environmental monitoring program.

EMP is the best front-line defense against product quality failure. It can be far less costly than even a single product recall.

Mérieux NutriSciences can help you find the best solutions, adapted to your needs, and provide you with the most effective data. Our experienced experts and accredited labs work with you to ensure your facility meets and exceeds your expectations.

Mérieux NutriSciences EMP Kit contains free resources to help you get started on your program.
