Food testing firm Eurofins has invested €3 million to upgrade its food testing laboratory in Suzhou, China as the company aims to provide a more comprehensive service to its clients in China and the Asia Pacific region.
Eurofins originally opened the Suzhou site in 2006, and this investment will double the size of the site to 3,900 square metres, while also upgrading the facilities at the lab.
Testing equipment at the site at the site will allow comprehensive testing of products for the dairy, nutrition markets, and allow the testing of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs).
The site will also provide food compliance testing based on regulations from China, the European Union, US and Japan.
This new laboratory further strengthens the company’s position in the Chinese market, following last year’s construction of another food testing laboratory in Qingdao, and the $670 million purchase of Covance Food Solutions earlier this month.
