Supermarkets are offering a wide range of goods, including fresh, processed and other food and feed items. The proportion of supermarket foods with pesticide residues has almost doubled in a decade. Primoris works together with different supermarkets and we have a lot of experience in the analysis and support of your needs in the supermarket branch.
Not only do supermarkets follow the pesticide EU-MRLs and active substances, some of them have elaborated own guidelines that might be more strict than the guidelines established by the EU.
With an ever increasing array of products, it is more and more challenging for supermarkets to analyze if their products are in line with legislation and food safety. Primoris guides its clients in setting up an analysis plan, interpretation of the results and others.
For many years, Primoris has been working together with different international groups of supermarkets worldwide. Our experience and knowledge makes us the ideal partner to suit your needs in the supermarket branch.

Proficiency tests, independent controls of a laboratory’s analysis quality, are part of Primoris’ everyday operation. The past months Primoris participated in the following proficiency tests:
- FAPAS: pesticides in honey
- Proof-ACS: pesticides in baby food
- FAPAS: pesticides in in basmati rice
- EURL-FV: pesticides in egg plant
Research and development are an important part of the Primoris activities.
To support these developments, we always consider evolutions in market demands and legislation. Maximal risk coverage is becoming increasingly important within pesticide residue analysis, which can be contributed to the increased focus on food safety. Furthermore, we have noticed a growing market demand for lower reporting limits.
On Monday 1 March, we activate a substantial expansion of our LC/MS-MS multiresidue methods. Thanks to this expansion, we assure maximum safety regarding the current legislations and directions in terms of food safety and we offer you analytical methods that are in line with the actual needs of the market and that are relevant for your products.
Since Monday 26 October, Primoris can support you with accredited analyses to quantify ethylene oxide in food and feed. Samples that are registered as from Tuesday 10 November for ethylene oxide analysis will be reported with a reporting limit of 0,01 mg/kg.
