I was wondering if you could give me an advice on pesticide and heavy metal testing on finished product (yoghurt).
We are in the process of taking on a new customer (Retail). Their routine testing requirement includes pesticides and heavy metals (only if relevant for certain products).
Would it be satisfactory if I do a risk assessment including all of the raw materials and the likelihood of heavy metal/pesticide contamination, also existing controls in place? We don't want to go down the route of routine testing (6 monthly) for heavy metals and pesticides unless it is absolutely necessary.
