Merieux NutriSciences

Swift Silliker is now trading as Mérieux NutriSciences

After 25 years as South Africa’s first and largest commercial food testing laboratory, the Swift Silliker brand is evolving.

Following the announcement of its acquisition in 2012, Swift Silliker will celebrate its 25th year with a new brand identity – one which is internationally synonymous with innovation and reliability in the fields of food, health, cosmetic, environmental and agricultural safety and quality.

As of 1 March 2016, Swift Silliker will officially be trading as Mérieux NutriSciences.

“By taking on the Mérieux NutriSciences name, we are emphasising our connection to an international network and subsequently, an extended range of services and facilities which we are able to offer our local clients,” says Valmé Stewart, MD of Swift Silliker.

“It is a name we are proud to be associated with and one which encompasses our commitment to customer excellence. We look forward to exciting new developments and offerings under the Mérieux NutriSciences banner in the near future.”
