Quality and safety services company Intertek recently established an Agricultural Testing Laboratory in Beira, Mozambique for chemical and microbiological testing. 
The grant from USAID’s Southern Africa Trade Hub is enabling Intertek to upgrade the laboratory with aflatoxin and wet chemistry testing services, which will give commercial traders the opportunity to have analysis done in-country at faster and more economical rates. The development of certified agricultural lab services in Mozambique by Intertek will provide important agribusiness services including aflatoxin testing, grain lab services, and independent arbitration services, supporting Mozambique’s agricultural sector.
