Testing food for marketability

The term ‘marketability testing’ is primarily used in the context of retail trade products and describes the testing of compliance with food law requirements and product-specific quality standards of the trade. The aim of marketability testing is to make the quality of the food product verifiable on the basis of independent reviews, thus guaranteeing food safety and protecting trade operators and end consumers from fraud and poor quality.

UFAG Laboratorien AG is one of the leading independent providers of sensory, microbiological and physiochemical testing and declaration testing in Switzerland.

To meet the highest quality standards, the assessment carried out by experts at UFAG Laboratorien AG always considers the specific food regulatory and technological properties of the product in question. In this regard, the maintenance of proportionality and the sense of responsibility for the consequences for all those directly or indirectly involved in the trade are a matter of course to us.

You can read more about what to be alert to when testing foodstuff marketability in Jörg Freudenberger’s article ‘Testing food for marketability’ in the 10/2016 issue of the trade journal "Alimenta".
