Stable Isotope Ratio Analysis (SIRA) is used to verify the declared provenance of products. Being able to prove where a product comes from builds trust and closes traceability loopholes.
Over 30 years ago our partners developed SIRA to authenticate wine. 100 product reference databases later, we now deliver an unrivalled service in authenticating the origin of produce.
For nearly a decade the world-leading scientists at Agroisolab have developed methods to test produce in large quantities. Projects we have collaborated on are revolutionising traceability and authentication.
SIRA (Stable Isotope Ratio Analysis) is one of the only technologies that can reliably authenticate the origin of produce. From agro-chemicals to pork, SIRA provides powerful verification of traceability ensuring that what you are purchasing is from its declared source.

If we don't know where food comes from, can we trust it?
Following the horse meat scandal, consumers have never been more interested about what they buy. We understand that there are four key things everyone from consumers to buyers need to know about food in order to trust in it.
1. That it is safe
2. That is has been produced to acceptable standards
3. That we know what the food is
4. That it comes from where the label says it comes from
SIRA is the best technology to authenticate the origin of food. If the product doesn't come from where the label say, the first three things are no longer meaningful.

China has continued to reduce the amount of pork it buys from EU countries after ASF outbreaks this summer. This is causing a market surplus and pork prices to drop. The gap in price, coupled with the extra pork on the market means that it is more likely fraudsters will try and pass cheap eastern-european pork off as British.
