Food Safety

At Fera, ensuring food safety and supporting its integrity (authenticity and traceability) is a core mission.

Food Safety

Want to play a pivotal role in helping to make sure food is safe?

Fera’s mission is rooted in supporting our partners across the agri-food chain to improve global food security, integrity, quality, sustainability, safety and goodness.

With a large range of testing abilities and unique knowledge based tools like HorizonScan® and services including Fapas, the world renowned laboratory proficiency assessment service, our multi-disciplinary approach gives an overall view of any food quality and safety issue, helping us to resolve problems quickly for a safer, more sustainable and healthy supply.

But we don't stand still. Prepared to be the fastest to respond to today's crisis, we also continuously innovate to prepare for tomorrow's challenges by developing ingenious tools for early warning, sustainable sourced alternative proteins and bio-degradable packaging materials and help into develop new farming and food production technologies for better quality produce with dramatically reduced environmental footprint.
