60 year history of innovation lays ground for new breakthroughs in food quality control
Meet us at the Analytica from 10th – 13th May 2016 at Hall A1 Stand 205
FOSS will be
celebrating its 60th anniversary at events around the world
including the upcoming Analytica event.
stand will feature a number of instruments for automating classical chemical
analysis methods for fat, protein and fibre as well as near infrared-based
solutions for all manner of rapid quality assurance tests, from testing moisture
in dairy products to alcohol content in wine.
The 60 year milestone
is significant for the food and agri industry because of the unique competences
that FOSS has built up over the years, placing it in a strong position to take
on ever- complex challenges within food and agri quality control. These include
adulteration of the supply chain, tight margins for food and feed producers and
the ongoing need to improve efficiency in production processes.
Family firm with courage to
Nils Foss in 1956, the company gained initial success with a new moisture
tester for grain growers. Further
innovations in analytical technology followed, not just in the grain industry,
but also dairy, meat, laboratory, wine, feed and raw milk sectors.
Chairman, Peter Foss said: “My Father founded the company 60 years ago based on
some fundamental attitudes about the way we do business and they still hold
today: high focus on product innovation, customer satisfaction and doing our
business with integrity.” See a video interview with Peter Foss here
Competences key to future
development of analytical solutions
analytical solutions is a complex task requiring multi-disciplinary talent in
technology fields such as near infrared, flow cytometry and X-ray. On top,
expertise in calibration development, software interfaces and instrument
maintenance are just some of the other qualifications behind a successful
analytical solution today.
ahead, FOSS will continue to invest in the skills and technology required help
producers tackle challenges in food quality control with an ever increasing
focus on areas such as ease of use, ease of implementation and integration with
quality assurance systems. Peter Foss said: “We need competences in many
specialities, we need to understand our customer’s needs and we need to
integrate those skills and functions. We can only do that with highly qualified
