In the Canton of Zurich, the Official Food Control Authority takes random samples of foods and utensils from production, processing and trade. In exceptional cases, private persons or companies may also commission such checks.

These services include:

  • The assessment of labels for compliance with food regulations if the company concerned has its registered offices in the Canton of Zurich.
  • Analytical studies if they cannot be made due to lack of laboratory equipment or know-how in a private laboratory.
  • Analytical studies in the context of complaints and measures based upon them.
