Soft Drinks & Fruit Juice (QBS)

daps UKAS Logo
  • UKAS accredited proficiency testing scheme
  • The LGC Quality in Beverages Scheme (QBS) is specifically tailored for chemists and microbiologists working in the soft drinks and fruit juice industries (including carbonated drinks).
  • Soft drinks and fruit juices are widely consumed throughout the world and these global customers expect their beverages to always look and taste the same. The industry continuously aims to meet these high expectations. However, maintaining and confirming the quality and reliability of a given product is a considerable challenge for production facilities and quality control laboratories meaning that contamination from microorganisms, chemicals and foreign matter could compromise product quality.
  • It is vital to prevent these types of errors as they can lead to the manufacture of out-of-specification product resulting in product wastage and disposal, lost production and the associated costs.
  • The LGC QBS scheme will allow laboratories to monitor analytical quality, helping to ensure that products are being manufactured to the highest standards.
  • Scheme operates from January to December
