Intertek receives testing accreditation

Total quality assurance provider Intertek Food Services has again been accredited by UKAS to the International Standard (ISO 17025) required to ensure high-quality microbiological and chemical food and water testing, including overall Quality Assurance, from its Stoke and Derby laboratories.

This latest accreditation ensures that Intertek is well positioned to support the overall UK industry, whether to reduce campylobacter, counter E.coli outbreaks, reduce food fraud, support changes in food labelling or proactively deal with potential Legionella outbreaks.

Lynne Agrella, Intertek UK food manager, said: “In an industry which requires high-quality testing, fast turnaround and accurate results, we are delighted that the industry recognises that Intertek’s food and water testing experts and services work to the high standards of quality and integrity required by our valued customers.”

Intertek offers a range of food testing capabilities from its UK laboratories to support producers, suppliers, manufacturers and retailers right along the global supply chain. The quality water testing range at Intertek also provides ongoing support to hospitals, ships, airlines and housing estates to name a few.
