Food adulteration is a continuing problem for both manufacturers and retailers within the global food supply chain. As these supply chains continue to grow more diverse, so does the challenge of ensuring high-quality produce from farm to fork. Activities such as using cheaper meats within products may be used to achieve financial gain by unscrupulous producers.
To combat this, accurate authenticity testing capabilities should be utilised to highlight any potential food adulteration instances. To maintain this high-level testing ability, effective quality control processes should be adhered to. Fapas quality control materials, within an effective external quality assurance set up, can provide a number of benefits, both in terms of progress tracking and staff training abilities, compared to sole proficiency testing activities. Fapas proficiency tests provide the foundations of effective quality control measures across all manner of tested analytes and matrices including chicken authenticity.
Fapas quality control materials can be used to track your progress in a longer-term scenario, across a range of testing environments and support your proficiency testing efforts.
