Fresh produce laboratories
Kiwa AQS not only takes care of sampling fruit and vegetables, but also ensures that the samples are delivered to specialized laboratories with which we collaborate. The customers of Kiwa AQS, including growers associations, sales organizations and trading companies, decide for themselves which laboratory should analyze their samples.
An important client of Kiwa AQS is Food Compass. Food Compass has a sectoral residue monitoring and a microbiological research program for the fruit and vegetable sector in which more than 250 companies participate. All samples are taken by Kiwa AQS at the participating companies. These samples are delivered to laboratories and analyzed by them. The Kiwa AQS samplers take the samples in accordance with Directive 2002/63/EC.
