《Food contaminants testing》

  SGS's food contamination analysis services can help you maintain product quality and comply with health, safety and environmental management standards. We can help you minimize the risks of hygiene and safety incidents of raw materials, semi-finished products, and finished products that do not meet standards or regulations through complex food residue testing. You can trust us to update you on the increasingly complex domestic and international food-related regulations and regulate the residues of hazardous substances in real-time.

  These contaminants may come from the drugs used in the process of cultivation and farming, or from the natural environment brought into the food chain, or the by-products produced during the production process. The residue standards of these substances in various countries vary between ppb and ppm. SGS provides analysis services for these contaminants, invests in considerable technical experts and high-end equipment as well as obtains technical approvals from domestic and foreign government agencies to assist you in implementing food safety and sanitation management to maintain product quality and comply with regulations.
