Ensure Quality and Safety for Your Customers

As a global industry, produce presents numerous challenges for all those involved in production and processing. Growers must protect their products from invasive insects and other pests, while processors and distributors must ensure the produce they’re working with is safe for shipment and consumer use. That’s why Barrow-Agee Laboratories offers produce testing services that analyze your samples for everything from pesticide residues and allergens to metals and minerals.

Our produce testing lab can help you identify harmful pathogens and contaminants, and our full line of wet chemistry analyses can help you understand numerous aspects of your produce, such as moisture, acidity, and more. We can also assist with nutritional panel analyses — enabling you to communicate the nutritional and dietary information that consumers need to live healthy lives.
