Food safety

We have the most extensive body of expertise in Sweden in sourcing company-adapted solutions to ensure the best possible microbiological quality and product safety.

We prevent hygiene problems arising in production by mapping contamination pathways for microorganisms and proposing techniques to minimise the risk of product contamination.

We use new methods and techniques that improve product safety and shelf life by inhibiting and inactivating existing microorganisms.

We train client company personnel in food hygiene and product safety. We offer IT-based tools to facilitate implementation and documentation.
