Welcome Food Allergen Centre (FAC) Ltd is a UKAS accredited laboratory that specialises in allergen testing for the food and drink industry as well as contract laboratories that require a tailored service. An allergic reaction can be induced by a tiny amount of a food ingredient that a person is sensitive to. Symptoms to food allergies can range from mild to severe and even life-threatening. There is currently no cure for food allergies; the only way to manage the condition is to avoid the food that makes the person ill. Under EU legislation food businesses are required to provide clear and accurate information about allergenic ingredients in their products. Our mission is to deliver a dynamic and focused service to professionally high standards that will provide our customers with complete confidence in their products.
