Product Testing Label

What is a food product testing label?

A testing label is a QR code (Quick Response Code) that is attached to food products, nutritional supplements and other consumables. Consumers can scan the testing label using a smartphone to access in-depth information on the product’s specific tested ingredients as well as on parameters and frequencies of the test plan. This helps consumers to make more informed choices about their purchases.

Why is a food testing label important?

A food product testing label adds value to your products by giving consumers clear and immediate access to relevant test information via a QR Code. Your business can earn consumer trust and maintain its competitive edge with regular and independent testing of selected parameters by TÜV SÜD to complement your own product controls. In-depth information about each product’s tested ingredients and test plan is independently published online at TÜV SÜD’s website, establishing your brand’s transparency and quality.
