Your assessor, „Senior Expert Consultant“and approved cross-checking expert for food and cosmetics for issues of marketability of food, cosmetics and quality assurance.

Your safety when placing food and cosmetics on the market …

… Germany or the German-speaking member states of the European Union, in dealing with authorities and the regulations of German, Austrian or European food law is an important concern for me.

As a basis for a trustful cooperation, I offer high competence and many years of experience in the field of product testing and marketability checking (composition, labeling, “regulatory”) of food, with special focus on food supplements and cosmetics, and quality assurance. The competence of a food chemist also includes consumer goods (products in contact with food or human skin, room sprays, etc.), packaging materials, animal feed, fertilizers, as well as the border areas to medical devices, biocides (desinfectants).

For special issues, I create audit reports and certificates, as well as expert opinions, including damage reports. I do not however, prepare toxicological reports.

After positive completion of a product testing and marketability checking, I issue marketability certificates.
