Pesticide Residue Testing

What is pesticide residue testing?

A pesticide residue testing identifies the pesticide residue levels in food products by undergoing a thorough chemical and microbiological analysis and gives food manufacturers and producers confidence of their product ingredients.

Why is pesticide residue testing important?

Although fresh produce is more susceptible to pesticide residue, all food is impacted and it’s important that your business understands whether harmful chemical residues are present in your food. The presence of pesticide residue in the manufacturing process can lead to the steady accumulation of harmful chemical residues entering the food chain. This subsequently leads to a high risk of health impacts on the environment, humans and animals alike.

To protect your business and minimise the risk of negative health impacts, you need to comply with the relevant guidelines and standards for minimising levels of harmful pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides in the food chain. Lowering pesticide exposure is vital for you to comply with local and international standards, and that’s where our pesticides testing solutions can help.
