Test Description

Herbs are widely used in cuisine and demand is expected throughout the year, not just seasonally. This can lead to increasing strain on complex global supply chains to meet demand. It is important to highlight poor quality produce from which to ensure consumer safety. Herbs, and by extension basil puree, are globally consumed in significant quantities. This results in extensive demand which can put global supply chains under pressure to meet. As a result, a range of pesticides can be used in excessive quantities, resulting in significant levels of pesticide residues being passed to the consumer, resulting in unsafe foodstuffs.

To ensure a high-quality crop, suppliers regularly use pesticides to reduce disease and pests within their crop. Through good farming practices, the levels of pesticides passed to the consumer is low and manageable below safe levels. Suppliers may not always be utilising good farming practice, so it is important to ensure high-quality testing to identify any high levels of various pesticides being passed to consumers. Foods for human consumption are tightly legislated and closely monitored for compliance across a range of pesticide residues, including chlorates. As a result, your effective testing measures are required to meet regulatory needs and protect consumers from potentially unsafe levels of a range of pesticide residues.

Fapas quality control materials can be used to validate whether a testing instrument or process is operating within pre-defined specifications. This validation process makes sure your test results are as close to the true value as possible, and therefore your testing process is a credible as it can be.
