Test Description

In many countries, genetically modified organisms (GMO) legislation has been established in order to guarantee the traceability of food/feed products on the market and to protect the consumer freedom of choice.

Canola can be used across a range of processed foodstuffs, as well as being sold as an individual product. This can all add to the large demand which puts pressure on the global supply chain. This pressure to satisfy demand felt by the global supply chain can result in low quality produce, and untraceable foodstuffs. It is therefore important to ensure your high quality testing abilities are required to ensure GM events can be highlighted.

Fapas proficiency tests can be used to highlight areas of low quality testing practices from which to form effective improvements within your quality assurance processes. Fapas proficiency tests make use of high quality real food samples. This can ensure high quality test practices are passed to your customers to ensure only high quality produce is offered to consumers.

Within this proficiency test, your testing capability for GM events in canola are evaluated. This gives you the ability to test & report for the key genetically modified canola varieties.
