Food safety and nutrition are major public health challenges that are integrated in public health policies in many countries. More broadly, protecting health entails the security of products that could, in their daily use, risk the health of consumers.
To address those challenges, Institut Mérieux developed Mérieux NutriSciences. With about 50 years of experience in food safety and quality, through Silliker, a company created in 1967 and acquired in 1997, Mérieux NutriSciences has won the confidence of the food industry and extended its expertise to several industrial sectors: Water and Environment, Pharma and Medical Devices, Personal Care and Cosmetics, AgroChemicals and Consumer Goods.
Headquartered in Chicago, IL, the company has grown rapidly over the last years and is now present in 21 countries with over 80 laboratories. Mérieux NutriSciences is increasing its presence in emerging countries, in particular in China, Brazil, Turkey, South Africa and India, with the purpose of answering these countries’ growing demands.
Today, Mérieux NutriSciences works with clients as a trusted partner to promote public health through analysis, consulting, auditing, training, contract research and sensory analysis services.
An integral part of Institut Mérieux, Mérieux NutriSciences contributes to advancing science and addressing the concerns of manufacturers through a uniform approach of quality.
