Solutions For Your "Due Diligence" Needs

In modern food manufacture and retailing it is quite impossible, no matter how well managed a company may be, to ensure that there will never be a defective product sold to the public.

As such The Food Safety Act 1990 does not require that there shall be perfection in food sales to the public. It does however, make it unlawful to sell defective food in circumstances where the trader cannot, or does not prove that he has taken "all reasonable precautions and exercised all due diligence".

There Must Be Proof Of "Due Diligence" - The Burden Of Proof Lies With The Defendant

In all cases Premier Analytical Services can provide the entire range of specialist services that you require.
