The award specifically recognises Geneius’ all-new DNA-based Meat Speciation platform that has been developed in house by then company’s R&D team. The product has been completely reworked following recognition of the inadequacy of proprietary methods used by other testing laboratories. The service gained UKAS accreditation and was launched commercially earlier this year. The service is proving popular and has already been adopted by retailers and major brands.

The development constitutes the company’s first foray into food authentication testing, and there are plans to extend this portfolio moving forward.
