Fresh products must undergo testing to address safety issues and to demonstrate that your fresh fruit, vegetables and others meet the most stringent pesticide residue standard in the marketplace today. We are specialized in the analysis of fresh products including fresh vegetables, fruit, exotic products and others.
With its 20 year of experience in pesticide research and method development, Primoris has established a broad customer base not only in Europe but also worldwide. Grower associations, vegetables and fruit cooperatives are our clients since the start-up in 2001.
By compiling data and information on RASFF notifications, existing legislations and recent changes thereof, Primoris wants to support their clients further in developing their food business.
Quality and residue testing are among the critical issues facing the fresh produce industry. We do our very best to support you in your fresh products analysis.
Primoris is approved by the German quality system QS. This shows that we meet even additional requirements such as a wide accreditation scope, content of the analyses and good results in QS and other ring tests.

The European Commission — Health and Food Safety, has published the 2016 annual report on the work of the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF). The RASFF was put in place to provide food and feed control authorities with an effective tool to exchange information about measures taken responding to serious risks detected in relation to food or feed. This exchange of information helps Member States to act more rapidly and in a coordinated manner in response to a health threat caused by food or feed.
