All Our Tests and Services
Food testing is at the heart of our expertise as a leading partner in the food industry.

Our food safety and quality analyzes are carried out by an international network of accredited laboratories, each of which fully understands specific industry requirements.

Environmental Monitoring is the best way to assess your plant and control the potential for contamination in your production processes.
Mérieux NutriSciences, your quality partner, can help you choose the most appropriate solutions for your needs. Our experienced specialists and our accredited laboratories work closely with your team to ensure that your products will always meet or exceed consumer expectations.
Monitoring of production environments is an indispensable part of a comprehensive quality assurance program. Environmental monitoring programs are carried out in food, therapeutic products, cosmetics and toiletries and household goods.
Most of the product contamination and recall incidents can be monitored because the manufacturer does not have a robust environmental monitoring program. A well-thought-out and delivered environmental monitoring program is the best front line defense against failure in product quality. A single product may cost less than a recall.
