Independent laboratory advice for Agents and Brokers

Independent laboratory advice for Agents and Brokers

 Agents and brokers provide a critical link in the food supply chain and face increasing demands in the wake of last year’s “Horsegate” frenzy.

The BRC Global Standard for Agents and Brokers was introduced this year. This standard provides essential certification for companies that provide purchase, importation or product distribution services in the food and/or packaging supply chain. One of the tools for an agent to assure the quality of food – and in some circumstances a requirement of the BRC Global Standard – is to commission periodic independent analysis from a lab that works to ISO17025.  That’s where SYNLAB can help. We work with customers large and small and are very happy to talk to businesses that are developing a testing regime for the first time.
