**QS recognizes first lab in Latin America: Normec Groen Agro Control Peru**

Delfgauw, 8/8/2023 – QS, the leading standard for food safety in Germany, proudly acknowledges our laboratory in Peru as the first laboratory in Latin America to meet the strict standards and requirements for food safety.

Residue monitoring in the QS scheme ensures that maximum residue levels of crop protection agents and contamination limits in vegetables, fruits, and potatoes are adhered to throughout the entire supply chain. This is essential to guarantee that consumers receive safe and high-quality food products.

The QS certificate for our laboratory in Peru opens new opportunities for collaboration with both national and international food producers and suppliers. We are delighted to now offer our expertise and high-quality services to a broader market in the Latin American region. This means that we can provide on-site laboratory analysis accredited by QS to our customers (growers and traders), assessing compliance with applicable maximum residue levels for crop protection agents and contamination limits.

We extend our special thanks to all the personnel at our laboratory in Lima; their dedication and commitment have been invaluable in achieving this milestone. We also want to express our gratitude to our customers for their continued trust in our services.
