Ensuring the highest levels of safety and quality for our foods – and yours.

With nearly four in five Americans (78%) concerned about food safety,* we understand how important it is for consumers to put their trust in the foods they eat.

That’s why as the largest and most sophisticated testing facility in the Nestlé network, Nestlé Quality Assurance Center (NQAC) Dublin tests tens of thousands of foods and beverages to verify compliance with all regulatory and food safety standards. And while our facility has supported Nestlé, the world’s largest food and beverage company for nearly three decades, we’ve expanded our food safety and quality support services to businesses outside the Nestlé network.

Because to us, food safety is not about being competitive; it’s part of our responsibility to help protect both consumers and food industry businesses. To that end, we hold all the products we test to the utmost safety and quality standards.
