Welcome to Northern Hygiene Laboratories Ltd's website. Whatever your food testing needs you will find us to be 'Personal but Professional'

Northern Hygiene Laboratories Ltd was created in 1990 to undertake the food testing work that had previously been undertaken by one of the UK’s leading poultry veterinary practices. Since then the company has evolved into one of the leading independantly owned UKAS accredited food testing laboratories in the country.

This has been achieved by understanding your requirements and then satisfying them by using the appropriate tests and undertaking these to the highest level of technical competence. There are many food testing laboratories in the UK, but Northern Hygiene Laboratories Ltd is one of the few to fully appreciate that there are two dimensions to the service you require – the technical and the personal.

However, in these demanding times when your business is under ever increasing pressures from customers, consumers, legislators (both UK and European) and enforcers, Northern Hygiene Laboratories Ltd is able to bring you something else!  

Our senior team has a wealth of practical experience in the food sector that is available for you and your colleagues to draw upon. All of this has been permanently incorporated into our corporate philosophy of ‘personal but professional’.

We appreciate that many of our valued clients and potential clients only appreciate part of our total range of services and so we have brought together this website to give everyone a comprehensive overview of our services and the benefits that they can bring to their businesses.

If there is any aspect of our services that are highlighted on this site and how they can benefit your business that you would like to discuss further, please feel free to contact me or one of my colleagues.
