TÜV SÜD South Asia, a leading certification, testing, auditing, inspection and training company and the wholly-owned subsidiary of TÜV SÜD Group, Germany inaugurated its enhanced, ultra-modern seafood, spices and commodity testing lab in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh.
The company already had an existing seafood testing laboratory in Visakhapatnam that had been meeting the testing and inspection requirements of domestic and export markets for over seven years. Present at the inauguration were Mr. Niranjan Nadkarni, CEO South Asia, South-East Asia, Middle East & Africa Region at TÜV SÜD and Mr. Ezhilan Neelan, Sr. Vice President at Product Service Division of TÜV SÜD South Asia along with other members of the South Asia Leadership team.
At the inauguration, Mr. Niranjan Nadkarni was delighted to be on site with the team to inaugurate the laboratory in Visakhapatnam at a new location with enhanced capacities and capabilities: “Over the years, we as a company have continuously invested in building infrastructure and local expertise to meet the ever-evolving needs of the food industry. We look forward to continuing to drive sustainable growth and progress through risk mitigation, quality and safety improvement and efficiency gains across the value chain.”
The laboratory is now operating at the new site with enhanced scope and capacities and will focus on further reducing turnaround times. The facility will provide chemical testing & microbiological testing solutions and will also cater to globally recognized certification requirements including BRC, HACCP and ISO 22000. This will help achieve traceability across key markets and act as a quality gate between manufacturers, suppliers and buyers.
