Protect Your Products Against Food Fraud and Adulteration

DNA AuthenticityTracker: Food Authenticity Testing You Can Rely On

Do you know what you are really selling or buying? How secure is your supply chain?

Whether it is horse meat labeled as beef or expensive spices adulterated with cheap or even harmful material – there are ongoing issues due to food adulteration in the market. More than ever, end consumers lack trust in our food’s authenticity. Therefore, it is essential for you to reassure consumers as well as industry customers that the products you deliver are authentic and trustworthy. In order to do that, you need to check raw materials and ingredients from your suppliers, too.

Eurofins offers the possibility to detect mislabeled ingredients and end products throughout your entire supply chain. Using various DNA-based detection methods, we can authenticate a wide range of food products including different kinds of meat, fish & seafood, plants, and spices. Don’t take risks. Take full control over your products‘ authenticity.
