AsureQuality’s Auckland laboratory is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited and Australasia’s largest and most respected food and dairy testing laboratory. With huge capacity and capability, the laboratory operates 365 days a year and performs up to 10,000 tests per day (more than two million per year) for food and dairy companies in New Zealand and overseas.

With internationally recognised expertise and direct association with AOAC International, ISO, IDF, The Infant Nutrition Council of America (INCA), China Society of Inspection and Quarantine (CSIQ) and CODEX Alimentarius Commission, their specialist team also have extensive hands-on experience and are passionate about sharing this knowledge with customers. Such an unparalleled depth and breadth of experience means that their solution-focused team are perfectly placed to provide technical advice and customised solutions to help their customers achieve the optimum results from their production.

In a recent example, they were called into action by a customer with an unexpected test result that meant their product no longer met overseas market regulations. While the testing was conclusive, there was an export order at risk, and the customer had no idea what had gone wrong. Within three hours, an AsureQuality expert was onsite working alongside the customer and was quickly able to identify and therefore fix this problem.

AsureQuality’s Laboratory Advisory Services are varied and range from root cause identification for contamination or spoilage, through to Standard Operating Procedure reviews, interpretation of test results and more.

Now New Zealand food businesses can engage an experienced expert to help when it matters most – to optimise systems, to problem-solve and to help them achieve the very best results.
