From the E.coli outbreak across Western Europe to the melamine scare in China, the safety of food and health products has become one of the top priorities of consumers, retailers, caterers and suppliers worldwide. For retailers and caterers, the main challenge is to ensure that the products they sell meet regulations and are safe for customers. Further up the value chain, suppliers need to test and certify their products while coping with pressures to control costs and reduce time to market.
TÜV SÜD offers a one-stop solution for testing, auditing and certification services throughout the supply chain, from the production of raw materials to manufacturing, processing, packaging, distribution and point of sale. We have a global network of laboratories, enabling us to serve companies in all major markets that require a short lead-time for testing and certification. Our laboratories are capable of biological tests covering toxins, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and shelf-life studies, as well as chemical tests designed for the whole range of territorial regulatory requirements. In addition, our services can be tailored for your own set of processes and procedures or to recognised international standards. We also provide training programmes to keep your employees abreast of current and future regulatory developments in product safety.
