Private and public food laboratories conduct food testing. This page lists the laboratories known to us, and likely to be able to assist you when required.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development does not conduct food testing. We have identified many laboratories in Western Australia (WA) to assist with microbiological, chemical and nutritional analysis of food. Also provided are eastern states-based laboratories servicing WA.

Listed in the table below are laboratories offering services to WA businesses.
