Analyses

Analysing the products that we sell and monitoring hygiene best practices are priorities in order to ensure high standards of quality and food safety.

In order to ensure the food safety of the products sold, apart from the audits on the facilities and equipment, we perform laboratory analyses on Perishables and Private Brand products.

In Poland, we carried out 9,750 analyses on Private Brand products and Perishables in 2015, representing an increase of around 45% compared to 2014.

In Portugal, we performed around 18,000 analyses, 4% less than in 2014, on Private Brand products in the various categories of Perishables and on the products from the Meal Solutions area. The decrease in the number of analyses carried out in some categories was due to the review of the annual analytical control plans.

In Colombia, we performed 293 laboratory analyses on food products, a decrease of 5% compared to 2014.

With the introduction of the meat cut and pack service in 25 Biedronka stores, we performed 625 analyses on work surfaces, equipment and handlers.

At Pingo Doce and Recheio we carried out 102,258 analyses on work surfaces, handlers of Perishables and products handled in stores including analyses of the water and air. This value represents an increase of 6.6% compared to 2014. In Colombia, the number of this type of analyses amounted to 930 samples collected, which means an increase of 133% compared to 2014.
