  • The LGC Quality in Gelatine Scheme (QGS) has been developed in collaboration with the trade body, Gelatine Manufacturers of Europe (GME).
  • GME members account for nearly half of the worldwide gelatine production and the key role of the GME is to ensure that gelatine is manufactured to a consistently high quality for the benefit of gelatine customers and consumers.
  • The most common use of gelatine is in the food and pharmaceutical industries as well as in the cosmetics, photographic and printing industries.
  • If a laboratory is involved in the quality control analysis of gelatine, QGS provides test materials in gelatine and gelatine hydrolysate matrices to represent a realistic challenge, with relevant chemical, physical, and microbial tests.
  • Scheme operates from January to December
