Quality assurance

Quality Assurance

Many governments aim to ensure food safety throughout several food chains (such as the fishing industry).  
Several recent calamities, within food supply, have taught us that proper hygiene needs to be combined with a continuous quality control on final and semi-finished products, in order to guarantee both quality and safety in the entire production chain.

Groen Agro Control is a no nonsense partner, highly experienced in advising on hygiene in production environments and transport (HACCP). Groen Agro Control is also the right company for you when it comes to quality control of half-finished products, to make sure final products are tested for several residues and to get quality certifications of your products. Our laboratory offers several analyses that are ISO 17025 accredited by the Dutch Accreditation Council that are also needed for several quality labels. Moreover, Groen Agro Control quickly adapts to changes in legislation and regulation by quickly developing new analyses.

Within the fishing industry we can offer the following analyses:

  • Traces of pesticides (e.g. on fresh water fish from Asia).
  • Traces of heavy metal (e.g. arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium).
  • Histamine.
  • Glazing (percentage ice on product).
  • Nutritional values
  • Microbiological analyses (e.g. Salmonella spp, Listeria monocytogenes, E. coli, Vibrio spp and Staphylococcus aureus).
