The company I work for makes a dry food ingredients (E551 and E552) and within our HACCP plan we identify that Pathogen growth as a hazard is low risk because of the very low water activity of the products. The data we have is rather old and I would like to generate some new data to support this statement.
I have sent out a few requests with no joy, so can anyone recommend a contract laboratory in the UK to perform this testing?
We are considering purchase of the equipment in 2021, if anyone has any advise this would be welcome too.
Thanks in advance for your help
