Today’s food and beverages (F&B) are much more than just simple "organic fuels" needed for survival. Beyond their nutritive value, they are consumed for their taste or flavor. Increasingly, they are also a source for maintaining health and enhancing our well-being via high-quality nutrition. At the same time, with an ever-increasing number of processed foods, food quality and safety aspects are becoming more important. All the more because foods are highly complex materials – prone to degradation...
Agriculture is by far the largest water use at global level. Irrigation of agricultural lands accounted for 70% of the water used worldwide. In several developing countries, irrigation represents up to 95% of all water uses, and plays a major role in food production and food security. Future agricultural development strategies of most of these countries depend on the possibility to maintain, improve and expand irrigated agriculture.
Manufacturers of food and beverages typically have a high volume of product passing through their facilities at all times. For this reason, any unexpected downtime can be very costly in terms of lost production. In addition, many food and beverage facilities have difficult challenges associated with lubricant contamination.
Our labs are USDA recognized and are under government grants to conduct food microbiological research.

Several on-line monitoring technologies such as non-destructive types have become increasingly important due to the increasing automation and the incorporation of new and more efficient processes in the food industry. Food quality and safety of food are the main points of interest, while adjacent processes such as process water and waste water treatment present new challenges to larger food companies.
Contamination free product is ever important, The Master Magnets range of Magnetic Grids, Plate Magnets, Drum Separators and Bullet Separators remove ferrous contamination from many types of packaging material. Metal Detectors can then be utilised to ensure complete protection against any metallic content.
The food processing industry is full of trends and challenges, as well as opportunities. In this competitive marketplace, success often depends on a business’s ability to deal well with difficult issues and anticipate the next hassle. Versatile, high-performing equipment can be a large part of that.
QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged, Safe) is a very popular method for the extraction and cleanup of fruit and vegetable samples for pesticide residue analysis.2-4 The extraction step uses acetonitrile and a salting out effect (with MgSO4). Cleanup is then accomplished using dispersive SPE (dSPE) followed by a centrifuge step prior to analysis.
This application shows the clean-up and analysis using Supel™ QuE Z-Sep+ QuEChERS and an SLB®-5ms GC column.
Successful organisations in the hospitality industry see a constant flow of guests arriving and departing, with each posing a different health and safety challenge.
