Food Lab Pacific (FLP) is a new food testing laboratory established in 2018, focusing on manufactured dairy product testing. We are a joint venture between Analytica Laboratories and MilkTestNZ, who already provide world leading analytical services for New Zealand’s milk producing industry.
Our mission is to provide New Zealand dairy and food manufacturers with a high service, innovative, and cost attractive testing option that supports and helps grow their businesses.
Based in the Waikato Innovation Park, Hamilton, New Zealand, we utilise the established nationwide sample logistics infrastructure and the technical support and innovation networks of our local founding shareholders, plus we are located conveniently for users of FoodWaikato facilities.
We understand dairy products, not just from a testing perspective, but are familiar with the manufacturing environments, regulatory framework, and logistical arrangements needed to get quality product to a wide range of domestic and international markets in a timely fashion.
