LAB

First Type of Tests: Examination in food factories

First Service: Examination and analysis of raw materials

Preliminary examination and laboratory of virtual materials that are supplied by accredited suppliers to make sure they conform to the quality requirements approved by the factory to prevent any defects may appear during the manufacturing process or final product thus saving a lot of money, effort and time

The importance of screening for raw materials

Through the examination of raw materials that are supplied to the factory by suppliers and report to the management conformity degree with the requirements and specifications of the factory

Second Service: Inspection service during manufacturing process

Through this service full control over quality of production which can detect any malfunction on the manufacturing process and then the possibility of rapid intervention to fix errors or problems that arise

The importance of inspection during the production process

When you’re 25% stages of product manufacturing, company to present a detailed report about the quality of performance and the quality of materials used and the time period expected to get the final product and then gives you the opportunity to take crucial strategic decisions concerning the production and distribution process

Third Service: Production process monitoring service

Control of the production process, starting from the first production steps until completion and provide a detailed daily report on all steps taken to allow you the opportunity to fix the problems in a timely manner

The importance of monitoring the production process

This service allows you to make sure that all phases of production are in accordance with the applicable quality standards within the factory plus any other agreed criteria in the case of manufacturing for third parties

Fourth Service: Inspect the final product

Through the examination of the final product before putting it on the market and ensure the conformity of the end product production quality standards, through which you can discover any defect or error in the packaging process, then the possibility of rapid intervention to fix errors or problems that arise before putting the product on the market


Second Type of Tests: Inspection

Inspection before shipment

This service is applied inside the factories which export their products where the company checks product intended for export through periodic visits of inspectors to assess the conformity of product quality standards and conformity of the product to the specifications agreed with the importer

The importance of product quality inspection before shipping

Through this service, the exported assured that the final product for export is identical to the quality specifications as well as to the specifications agreed with the importer which provides a great opportunity to open world markets for export, in addition to avoiding re-exporting or rejection by the importer and that is done through the issuance of accredited certificate is sent to the importer within the shipping documents

Oversee the process of downloading the products in containers
