In order to find residues of pesticides, as from crop protection, in our food, WESSLING carries out regular tests and inspections for Germany's largest food manufacturers, suppliers of raw materials and traders.
The analysis and evaluation of pesticides in food places high demands on expertise and technology. With our extremely efficient laboratory equipment and highly qualified employees, we achieve the highest quality in analysis. Our experienced experts advise food producers, raw material suppliers and retailers on all questions of the analysis spectrum and professional sampling. They evaluate the results and check the conformity of raw materials and products with legal requirements and trade standards in accordance with the EU Pesticide Maximum Quantity Regulation 396/2005 and the Maximum Residue Quantity Ordinance.
The basis of our food testing is a continuously updated list of relevant pesticides: our pesticide screening comprises about 600 important active ingredients and metabolites. Multi-methods are supplemented by numerous individual methods for active ingredients, so that our experts also cover challenging matrices and adapt to the individual needs of food production and trade.
We would be pleased to send you the current list of active substances analysed by us. Please contact us.
