Test Description

Demand for palm oils continues to grow, and such high demand places pressure on suppliers to provide sufficient material. In this situation it can be tempting to allow lesser quality oils into the supply chain to keep up with demand.

Regular (and accurate) testing is therefore required to ensure the quality of oil provided to consumers and manufacturers is kept at the level expected, and participation in a proficiency test can help to validate the analytical results from the testing laboratory.

Fapas proficiency tests can provide your labs with similar challenge to that which are faced within routine testing arrangements. And through the use of real food samples quickly comparable results can be made, allowing you to provide insights into improving your testing procedures quickly and effectively if required.
