These values represent our very essence and form the basis of our relationship with you, our customers and partners.  Focused on the future, we help our customers anticipate changes, protect the reputation of their operations and companies, and maintain their sustainable performance.

Our Values

Our Vision

From farm to fork, food safety is today the #1 concern within the food sector. With the emergence of new sources and forms of contamination, the immunisation of certain bacterial sources and the desire to move away from the use of antibiotics, pesticides and chemical preservatives, the challenges are immense.

About Our Vision

Preventing risks associated with the transmission of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens to operators and to consumers is the primary concern throughout the food chain.  Everyone involved – farmers, veterinarians, suppliers to the farm industry, food processing plant operators, retailers…- has a stake and a responsibility in the safe production and processing of food. Failure at any stage means putting the life of consumers and staff at risk. Failure can have disastrous short and long-term consequences for a business. Failure can engage the personal legal responsibility of managers and staff.

Our Mission

Everyone involved in the food chain needs a business partner with the scientific expertise and field experience to deliver customised answers having identified the risks and critical control points. Food safety is our core field of expertise, recognised all over the world. Our products and services prevent disease and contamination in both animals and humans.
