Fruits & Vegetables

" Entrust your contaminant analyses to a specialist "

Fruit and vegetable sector

Vegetables - a strictly culinary term - and fruit - the edible organ of flowering plants - are represented by a diverse and dynamic sector based on numerous official signs and quality procedures. Among the fruits, several categories are generally distinguished :

  • citrus fruits (lemon, orange, grapefruit, etc.),
  • berries (strawberry, grape, raspberry...),
  • pome fruits (apple, pear),
  • stone fruits (apricot, peach, cherry).

The "Fruit & Vegetables" sector accounts for 1.6% of the total expenditure of French households and 12% of their food budget. It benefits from real added value for consumers, 91% of whom have confidence in fruit and 89% in vegetables.

Controlling health risks

The quality and safety of fruit and vegetables are among the priorities of the European Union.
To ensure health safety within the sector, we support you in the organisation of your control plan and respond to the many regulatory changes in terms of contaminant analysis.
