Stable Isotope Ratio Analysis for the testing of authenticity of food product origin and production method claims

Food Fraud is a global problem with a long heritage. With global food supply chains growing in complexity, fraudulent food labelling has become an ever increasing risk.
Consumers are becoming more aware and concerned with how and where their food products originate. Suppliers are taking a more active interest in protecting their brand reputation.

By using this technique we are able to help protect consumer, supplier and producer interests.
