Eurofins, a global leader in the testing, inspection and certification industry and a market leader in food and feed testing, announced that its existing Food Assurance businesses in North America, Europe and Asia will now work together under the newly established Eurofins Food Assurance Business Line.
Serving all stakeholders of the food and feed industry, from primary producers and manufacturers to retailers and distributors, the new business line offers a unique line of assurance services such as auditing, certification, training and consulting, including labeling services for international market access, the announcement said. Eurofins Food Assurance takes advantage of global synergies between various teams and will further expand its geographical coverage in 2020.
Through Food Assurance, Eurofins said it will combine its expertise, reputation for quality, safety and integrity and market-leading position to support its customers internationally. Eurofins Food Assurance helps customers identify and mitigate risks along their supply chain — in terms of operations, processes, systems and people — to bring the safest and highest-quality products to market for consumers around the world and ultimately safeguard their brands.
Local Eurofins representatives will continue to support customers in their markets; however, customers with a global footprint will now also have access to a one-stop-shop worldwide panel of assurance experts, who will leverage 25 years of experience and expertise in the industry, to support their operations across the world. The new business line completes and complements Eurofins’ Food & Feed Testing offering.
Animal health testing services
Eurofins also announced the launch of a dedicated business unit and the plans for a new state-of-the-art laboratory in Indianapolis, Ind., designed solely for testing services to support animal health companies from early product development through late-stage registration and marketed product support.
Eurofins Animal Health provides a wide variety of services, including GxP analyses on low-level pharmaceutical compounds and animal feed, consultation and report generation for registering compounds with the Center for Veterinary Medicine as well as a number of other services that include, but are not limited to, enzymatic activity in feed, active ingredient testing, plant tissue testing, stability testing, reference material testing and more.
“Eurofins is excited to create a focused business unit and new facility to support the needs of the animal health industry,” said Ross Gulotta, president, Eurofins Food Integrity & Innovation. “We know that GMP and GLP studies can be costly, time consuming and put a strain on product development resources. We help our clients balance their internal lab’s capacity and capabilities whether they seek short or long-term solutions.”
The new business and laboratory enable Eurofins to expand its capabilities to support animal health companies to get their products to market faster.
