As a food processor, you want to ensure that all foods destined for consumption are safe to eat. The safety of our food supply depends in large part on determining the quality of raw materials and implementing processing conditions to ensure safety of the finished product. The University of Guelph, Agriculture & Food Laboratory (AFL) provides food manufacturers and processors with food safety testing – your toehold in the industry. We offer a variety of food quality and safety tests to help ensure your food meet required regulations, and to support your reputation. AFL is dedicated to helping food processors maintain safe food with accredited tests and reliable results.
Our quality laboratories can test your raw ingredients and finished products to detect contamination and monitor cleanliness of workplace surfaces to comply with HACCP implementation. We can test for residues that can compromise your food's safety to consumers. This could include foreign contaminants such as glass or plastic, undeclared allergens, mycotoxins, or other residues. We can also test to ensure your allergen label claims are fully supported.
