Product Evaluation and Lab Support

The Quality Chekd Compliance Program requires monthly product evaluations to confirm that each meets the organization’s elevated standards. The Merieux NutriSciences state-of-the-art laboratory conducts microbiological, chemical, and sensory product testing on member product samples.

The Quality Chekd Lab Proficiency Program is conducted in partnership with Merieux NutriSciences and provides a cost effective method to routinely assess the technical proficiency of on-site labs and staff and benchmark against an accredited lab.

Through Quality Chekd’s partnership with Merieux NutriSciences, members receive a substantial discount on critical quality assurance services, such as environmental monitoring, single service packaging certification, third party auditing, training  and nutritional analysis/labeling assistance.
