Food Contaminant Testing

SGS’s food contamination analysis services help you to maintain quality and comply with health, safety and environmental regulatory standards.

Through intricate food residue testing, we can help you minimize the risk of non-compliance in relation to your raw ingredients, semi-manufactured foods and final products. Our global network of food scientists and laboratories ensures that we have expertise in all principal segments of the food chain and a local presence, wherever you are.

You can trust us to update you on the increasingly complex mix of local and national legislation and voluntary agreements regulating the permitted quantities of restricted substances in food products. In addition, we detect and identify food-borne diseases and chemical, microbiological or physical food hazards in order to reduce their presence and ensure your products meet the appropriate guidelines.

Our food contaminant testing services cover a wide range of restricted substances including:

  • Dioxins
  • Food allergens
  • Food radioactivity contamination
  • Genetically modified organisms (GMO)
  • Mycotoxins
  • Pesticide residues
  • Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)
  • Species identification
  • Veterinary drug residues

Contact SGS now to find out we can help you meet your regulatory requirements.
