i2 FAST (Food Analysis & Safety Testing) has announced the acquisition of Mycotoxin Laboratory (UK) Limited for an undisclosed fee.
Established in 2002, Mycotoxin Laboratory (UK) Ltd is an independent testing laboratory, based in Rotherham, specialising in the analysis of Aflatoxins and Ochratoxin A in food, food ingredients and feed, and will continue to trade from its current premises. The acquisition by i2 FAST, part of the i2 Analytical Group, will extend i2 FAST’s comprehensive food testing service in the UK, which includes pesticide, microbiology and nutritional testing.
The i2 FAST laboratories operate from state-of-the-art facilities in Hemel Hempstead and utilising a market leading digital platform, the acquisition of Mycotoxin Laboratory will further support i2 FAST’s credentials as the UK’s fastest growing food testing laboratory.
Les Jones, Founder & CEO at i2 Group, said: “The acquisition of Mycotoxin Laboratory is aligned to our ongoing growth strategy, as we seek to extend our core business values of offering customer solutions through innovation, into new service areas. We look forward to working closely with the Mycotoxin Laboratory team and their customers, in addition to supporting the wider UK food industry by this extension of our current food testing capabilities.”
