Throughout the world, food and agricultural products are tested on FOSS dedicated analytical solutions.
We use the term ‘dedicated’ because FOSS solutions are user-friendly and tailor-made to deliver exactly the information our customers need to improve their production and profitability. In this way, FOSS solutions have helped businesses to succeed in a wide variety of industry sectors. To take a few examples, 85% of the world’s milk production, 80% of grain traded on the world market and 75% of the world’s beer production is tested using FOSS Analytical solutions.
Reliable and easy-to-use FOSS Analytical solutions help our customers to produce the quality products that their business demands. Brand recognition is protected and enhanced. Consumers can enjoy products of optimum value. And products can be produced making the best possible use of valuable natural resources.
And why do we use the term ‘solutions’, rather than ‘instruments’ or ‘analysers’? That’s because we offer customers far more than technical equipment. Pre-sales consulting, ready to use calibrations, customised application development and ‘FOSS4me’ industry discussion forums on the FOSS intranet are just some of the elements that contribute to a complete analysis solution.
Central to the success of FOSS Analytical in delivering dedicated analytical solutions are the FOSS values. The FOSS values are shared throughout the FOSS organisation and kept in mind under the keywords:
• ‘First’ – to be first in all aspects of our work constantly creates new business opportunities and value for our customers.
• ‘Customer Satisfaction’ – focusing on customer satisfaction helps us to provide value for money in a FOSS dedicated solution
• ‘Knowledge’ – making effective use knowledge, for instance, understanding our customer’s business processes, is a key factor in the success of our dedicated solutions
• ‘People and teams’ – innovation coupled with effective teamwork across disciplines are essential to our success
