ABOUT FOODTEST LABORATORIES LTD
Foodtest Laboratories was formed in 1994 by Robin Jones, an analytical chemist and ex ASDA Laboratory Manager. The companies aim was and is to offer expert microbiological and chemistry testing to the food and beverage industry. ISO 17025 accreditation (UKAS) soon followed and the company continued to grow culminating in the relocation of the laboratories in 2009 and then again in 2017, purposely keeping the microbiology and chemistry laboratories in the same building.
We pride ourself on our customer service with the main aim of providing a more customer focused experience than our competitors. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will guide you through the types of testing you require through to sampling plans, reporting results and results interpretation where required.
The Nutritional Chemistry and Microbiology Laboratories are on one site which keeps sample receipt, sample management and reporting logistics coordinated and efficient.
Knowledgeable microbiologists and chemists are available to discuss results and offer advice on meeting regulatory requirements or advice on production techniques to achieve a longer shelf life.
If you have potential or ongoing contamination issues you can request advice or investigations from our in-house consultants. We also have an extensive network of consultants throughout the United Kingdom who have particular expertise if required. Please see the consultancy page for further information.
We can offer a free of charge chilled collection service for regular customers and we have extensive experience of guiding start up businesses through the legal requirements for selling their products and reviewing packaging for legal compliance.
As we embark on a new chapter in the services that we can offer such as consultancy, cooking validations, 3rd party auditing and training you can rest assured that Foodtest will maintain and build upon the positive relationships that have been developed throughout the last 25 years which we hope to extend to all new customers as they seek a one stop food, water and environmental testing and consultancy service.
