A New Recipe for Trust – Proficiency Testing

The demand on business to ‘do more with less’ continues. Budgets face constraint, and everyone increasingly looks to key areas of the organisation to improve productivity and support key business initiatives as well as protecting revenues against ever increasing challenges like ‘Food Fraud’ and ‘Authenticity’.
