SGS can test for a wide range of pesticide residues in food to ensure that you comply with the maximum residue levels (MRLs) set by many countries.

FSMA food safety

In order to protect consumers, pesticide residues are under strict legislation worldwide. To be sure your product complies with international regulations, our pesticide residue analysis service offers a vital tool in the identification and control of residues.

It is well known that over-use of pesticides can lead to dangerous levels of hazardous chemicals entering the food chain. Fresh fruit and vegetables are being consumed in increasing quantities and it is this fresh produce that is most susceptible to pesticide residues.

Using liquid chromotography and gas chromotography techniques, we can test several hundred residues of pesticides including:

  • Fungicides
  • Herbicides
  • Insecticides
  • Molluscicides
  • Rodenticides

With an increasing number of pesticide residues now being controlled, you can trust us to stay up to date with the latest regulations. We have established a worldwide network of laboratories where we develop best testing practices for agro-chemicals. To ensure your products meet regulatory standards, our skilled technicians test for pesticide exposure across these food types:

  • Beverages
  • Cereals
  • Grains
  • Legumes
  • Dairy
  • Fish
  • Fruit
  • Meat
  • Vegetables
