Food Investigations and Crisis Management

EAG scientists work with food manufacturers, processors and distributors when questions of quality issues can potentially lead to shut-downs, customer complaints or legal disputes. Our food investigations have played key roles in crisis management, saving companies time and money in critical situations.

EAG scientists design investigations to confront difficult and unusual problems for food processors, packagers, manufacturers and distributors. When unforeseen quality issues occur, our scientists are available 24/7 to solve complex, non-routine problems using a customized approach. We welcome rush projects for emergency contamination issues.

How do we know if the alleged contamination in our product was caused by a packaging leachable? Turn to EAG. WE KNOW HOW.
