While exporting refined/raw sugar, quality control is one of the major areas. VSI sugar laboratory helps in assessing refined/raw sugar quality.
This laboratory provides analytical services to all the concerned dealing with sugar and other byproducts as per demand. Around 650 sugar and molasses samples are analysed per year for the parameters requested by the clients.
The Manager of the laboratory is working as Associate referee for the ICUMSA. The laboratory has participated three times in collaborative testing organized by the ICUMSA. The results obtained were to the level of expectations of the ICUMSA.


 
Salient Features of Sugar Laboratory
The sugar laboratory is well equipped with sophisticated instruments
International (ICUMSA) and National (IS) standard methods are adopted for the analysis.
A total of 19 test parameters are under the scope of accreditation for sugar and molasses
The staff working in the laboratory is having vast experience of sugar manufacturing process of refined, white, raw sugar and its analysis
The test reports of the laboratory has international acceptance
