Every food product tells a story. We can read its story through its chemical composition, sensory perception, nutritional value, composition, texture and microbiological quality. Through this information we can learn genetical and geographical origins, and know about environmental and climatological conditions. And we also can read of the practices it went through from breeding to distribution. We have the capabilities to deliver solutions to check if there are food additives to enhance safety and quality characteristics. And we can also provide with an answer if the food has been contaminated by pesticides, veterinary drugs, antibiotics, hormones, mycotoxins, allergens or others.
