Pesticide Residue testing

Contact us

The presence or steady accumulation of pesticide residue along the supply chain can lead to harmful chemicals entering the food chain and therefore posing a threat to human and animal health, as well as impacting the soil and environment.

Regulations for approved pesticide use apply to both domestic crops and imported foods. Ensuring the safety of your food or feed products safeguards your brand by staying compliant with both domestic and international regulations.
