Species analysis testing identifies the meat or seafood species in your food products. By conducting a species analysis on your produce, you will protect your business from contamination in the supply chain. You will minimise the risk of fraud with our species detection and identification services, and ensure supply chain security. You will also avoid the risk of contamination and build consumer confidence.
The contamination of food products with unauthorised meat content, including pork and horse DNA, has challenged consumer confidence levels in well-known brand reputations and has led to the recall of products from supermarkets. This is why meat and seafood species analyses are vital tests for your business.
