Food production has become a very complicated process. Today’s food ingredients and additives are now sourced globally and can incorporate multiple manufactures and suppliers from countries all over the world. This leaves vulnerabilities in the food supply chain and can lead to unintended adulterations to the finished food products as defined in the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act for Food.

Testing food ingredients and additives for quality and purity by established documentary standards, such as the FCC, help manufacturers, suppliers and regulators protect the food supply. Applying these testing specifications, along with authenticated Reference Standards, help ensure the quality and purity for food ingredients. 

R.D. Laboratories partners with food manufacturers and ingredient suppliers to provide quality testing services for the food industry.
