The food processing and quality control industry has seen a major upheaval in recent years thanks to the innovation of technology. Leading companies are now spending a lot of money to improve safety protocols and packaging technologies. Innovation and scientific research has now become a common norm in the food and beverages industry and one company leading the charge is Mérieux NutriSciences. Founded in 1967 in the United States by Dr. John H. Silliker, the company has pioneered the use of processes and technologies to protect consumer health in the food industry throughout every step of the supply chain. Mérieux NutriSciences is a global company with roots deeply tied to science dating back to the 19th century.

In the late 1800?s, Marcel Mérieux first studied biology under Louis Pasteur and Émile Roux, concentrating on vaccinology. He later founded the Institut Mérieux, located in Lyon, France, which became the world leader in human and animal vaccines. With a strong commitment to health and nutrition, Institut Mérieux would later become the parent company of Mérieux NutriSciences, globally grouping together activities to prevent health risks related to food, water and the environment. In 1997, Mérieux NutriSciences acquired Silliker in the United States. Silliker, a pioneer in the food safety and quality field, helped solve vital food safety issues in partnership with leading food and beverage companies.

Impact in the Retail Sector

As the retail industry prepares itself for some dramatic changes, Mérieux NutriSciences is aiming to work together with retail companies to help them create better technologies. The company has already left an indelible mark in the industry as pioneers in food safety innovations. Since venturing into the retail industry, the company has created much awareness among retail businesses on the need for improved food safety and quality.

With its ability to understand global health challenges and regulatory issues, Mérieux NutriSciences has given customers more control over their products. As a food safety leader, the company is set out to solve some of the most critical safety issues on both the supply and demand side of the market by bringing new advancements in the field.

The company adheres to the highest quality standards to ensure customers maintain regulatory compliance and an effective food safety culture. Today, it services some of the biggest retail clients worldwide. Mérieux NutriSciences? was one of the first companies to bring in analytical capabilities and digital solutions to help customers gain accurate insights into the ever-changing world of FDA rules and regulations. Mérieux NutriSciences? key to success is proper planning to help retailers be up-to-date about any new regulations in the market.

Some of the company?s major retail solutions include: nutritional analysis, menu & nutritional labeling, food label reviews, auditing certifications, analytical testing (both microbiology and chemistry) and a new digital solution, which allows a company to track all their supplier, testing and customer data and monitor their KPI?s in one, customizable dashboard.

?Mérieux NutriSciences? mission is to protect the health of our consumers. We do this by focusing on providing customer excellence in each industry in which we preside,? says Jim Miller, President of North America for Mérieux NutriSciences. By analyzing customers? needs, wants and their pain points across the supply chain, the company discovers the best path and solutions to move forward.

Most retail establishments have never seen the value in analyzing complex data groups together. This is where Mérieux NutriSciences distinguishes itself as a solution provider. The company takes the idea of providing high-quality, affordable foods products to the next level with QualMap. An enterprise software that helps retail establishments view all their suppliers? data in one, centralized location - on a customized dashboard. The solution gives customers the power to address all their data needs and make important process and supply chain decisions based on that information.

Mérieux NutriSciences is constantly looking forward to explore what?s new in the industry. Over the past year, the company has introduced various capabilities to provide customers with a safer and higher quality product from farm to fork. The company?s menu labeling and food label reviews continue to be in high demand as companies need proper guidance and support to tackle the FDA?s rapid change in rules and regulations.

Mérieux NutriSciences? prides itself on being experts in food safety and quality. The company?s scientists are helping pave the way for the future of the food and nutrition industry through innovation, research and being on the forefront of change. Miller says, ?We put our customers first, spending the time to understand their needs and goals, before working with them on the right solution, and this will always be the case - whether now or 50 years from now.?

This year Mérieux NutriSciences is celebrating 50 years. Being on the forefront of innovation and leveraging digital technology into all aspects its business, the company is focused on continuing to be the global leader in food safety and quality.

Mérieux NutriSciences, a global food safety and quality partner offering testing, labeling, auditing, consulting, sensory, training, and research services to the food industry, has formally formed a Scientific Advisory Council dedicated to staying on the forefront of science and technology in the food safety, quality, and testing arenas.

The group is a collective of leaders in the food industry, as well as senior management and scientists at Mérieux NutriSciences, and will contribute valuable insight on the industry, customer, and consumer trends from an external vantage point.

?Being able to leverage the years of knowledge and expertise that was available in one room at one time, was powerful. Ultimately, our goal is to be able to build a network of people who can collaborate on the challenges facing our customers and work together to form a solution,? says North American President Jim Miller.

The Scientific Advisory Council had their first meeting in late April at Mérieux NutriSciences? Dr. John H. Silliker Solutions Center in Crete, IL. ?Because Dr. Silliker upheld such a strong scientific legacy in the food industry, hosting the first meeting at our Crete lab named in his honor seemed appropriate,? states Miller. Presentations led to powerful discussions related to recent industry news and administration impact surrounding whole genome sequencing, clean labeling, and GMOs. The group will continue to meet periodically to move forward the council?s initiative to enhance the education and advancement of food safety and quality in the United States.

Special thanks to our entire Scientific Advisory Council, whose support and loyalty to food safety and quality will make this effort a success that will affect the entire industry.
