The German Agricultural Society (DLG) Food Testing
Our member companies apply individually for the German Agricultural society Awards. German Agricultural Society food testing provides the consumer with neutral and independent results about the quality of food. For the purposes of active consumer protection, product testing is performed by scientific experts on the basis of the current quality standards and recognised methods. It analyses the sensory quality of food (colour, appearance, consistency, taste and smell). Further important criteria are preparation tests, packaging and labelling tests as well as chemical, microbiological and physical analyses in accredited laboratories. http://dlg.org/home-en.html?&no_cache=1
The German Product Testing Foundation
The German Bundestag decided in 1964 to create the German Product Testing Foundation (Stiftung Warentest). Its objective is to provide independent and objective support for consumers in making purchase decisions by conducting comparative testing of goods and service. Nuremberg sausages have been tested in the sausages category. You can see the results of these tests for yourself, either directly on the Product Testing Foundation’s website or by contacting us. www.test.de
QA Test System
The QA test system for foods is unique amongst food quality testing systems in Europe as it covers food at every stage from the farm to the shop counter. Since its foundation in the year 2001, it has stood for in-depth checks, a reliable traceability and clear labelling of foodstuffs from good sources.
