Food and Agricultural Analysis

"Food production has been industrialized and its trade and distribution have been globalized. ...

... These changes introduce multiple new opportunities for food to become contaminated with harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, or chemicals. A local food safety problem can rapidly become an international emergency. Investigation of an outbreak of food-borne disease is vastly more complicated when a single plate or package of food contains ingredients from multiple countries.” (WHO Director General Dr Margaret Chan, 2015)

Globalization puts ever-increasing demands on the food and agriculture industry. Highly sensitive analytical instrumentation is key for reliable monitoring of food products along the food chain starting from agricultural production over food processing and packaging to distribution and consumption. Analytik Jena analytical solutions help you meet industry standards during both development of new products or quality control assessment.
