Whether it’s shelf-life information, microbiological analyses, foreign body testing or nutritional information you need, we can help. In conjunction with our laboratory partner we’ve created an extensive sampling and analysis service just for you.

Using UKAS accredited laboratories, Food Alert can fulfil all of your sampling requirements, offering a variety of tests such as:

  • Microbiological food sampling
  • Shelf-life testing
  • Allergen sampling
  • Validation of cooking/reheat instructions
  • Food complaint investigations
  • Environmental sampling
  • Water sampling
  • Chemical sampling

We offer very competitive prices and include the additional services of interpreting results and providing recommendations in an easy-to-understand format. How does it work? It’s simple, we will arrange the collection of the food sample, manage the analysis and one of our team of experts will be in touch to go through the results and actions with you.

Premises that benefit from this service most, include Central Production Units (CPUs),  Dark Kitchens and any food service business that wants to validate their cooking and hygiene methods for example sous-vide, less than thoroughly cooked (LTTC) burgers etc. and validation of environmental and personal hygiene standards.

Food Labelling and Nutritional Analysis

As of October 2021, any business based in England must clearly label all foods packed and produced on their premises with a complete list of ingredients. This legislation is legally enforced under Natasha’s Law.

Catering businesses now have to comply with mandatory calorie labelling on restaurant menus and we can provide support and advice on this.

Food Alert can help with all  food labelling requirements including full food and nutritional labelling for suppliers of pre-packed foods.

No matter whether you are a large manufacturer or a small caterer, we are here to assist with all your sampling and labelling needs. If you need assistance with any of the above, get in touch and our dedicated technical team will be happy to help.
