Eurofins Food Safety Systems (EFSS) and Orion Assessment Services are to expand auditing and certification services in Canada.

The partnership will allow Eurofins to broaden its BRC Global Standards and GFSI scheme auditing resource base.

It will also allow Orion Assessment Services to operate under Eurofins accreditation for BRC, SQF and FSSC 22000 schemes.

Orion Assessment Services offers services for the Gluten Free Certification program, GMP and HACCP audits, as well as gap assessments across North America.

Last year, due to demand from new and existing clients the firm decided to expand to offer GFSI audits.

"For our existing food clients, we see this as a fantastic opportunity to be able to offer them a 'one stop shop' for all of their food certification needs,"​ said Aaron Campbell, VP of Orion Agri-Food Safety.

Eurofins has similar regional partnership agreements in Chile and New Zealand who work under their accreditation.

With 30,000 staff in 400 labs across 42 countries, Eurofins offers more than 150,000 analytical methods for evaluating the safety, identity, composition, authenticity, origin and purity of biological substances and products.

"Orion Assessment Services expressed interest in being able to provide certification services in the food industry under our accreditation to Canada and other parts of the world and we are happy to partner with them in this endeavor,"​ said Gary Smith, director of EFSS.
