The AQUANAL Laboratory (Aquitaine analyses), created in 1989 by Dr Didier Guillonneau, quickly specialised in the control of the labelling of food products.

Nowadays, with 30 years of experience in the field of health food analysis (dietetic products, infant and medical nutrition, food supplements, animal feed, etc.), AQUANAL offers its customers a wide range of analyses enabling them to control and evaluate the nutritional values of their products.

The logistical capacity of the laboratory allows for the analysis of all food labelling parameters.
