Food Testing

In an ever-changing market defined by evolving consumer interests and expanding regulations, Food Safety Testing is of the utmost importance. OMIC USA Inc. offers quality food safety testing you can trust. From pathogens to pesticides, we can verify your food production chain.

In conjunction with a robust risk assessment plan, analytical testing is used to proactively monitor and meet regulatory requirements that may impact food production and distribution.

Having strong evidence and corroborating analytical reports is necessary to pinpoint food hazards and verify that appropriate steps are being taken to mitigate them. Many Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) programs use testing as a way to measure hazards at critical control points and to know when they are reaching critical limits before issues arise. Let OMIC USA Inc. be your partner in ongoing monitoring and verification of your food safety plan.
