Food Industry

Food safety is paramount when producing food products. Calibration of measuring instruments guarantees their accuracy and ensures your products meet all quality and filling requirements. In addition, you are also very likely to have to meet the calibration requirements of the BRC or those imposed on you by major clients.

By conducting calibrations and validations in the food industry, Kalibra helps companies meet these.


Kalibra Calibrates For the Food Industry

Kalibra supports food producers in determining the critical parameters in the production process. We calibrate all measuring points in your production process that affect the quality and quantity of your end product. Within the tolerances set by you, we can also adjust deviations that are outside specifications. This demonstrates that you have taken all responsibility for this part of the safety of the food chain.

Kalibra employs 100 permanent calibration technicians, uses its own certified reference equipment, and provides comprehensive calibration reports, which have been accepted by all certification bodies in the food industry for many years. Prior to conducting measurements in the production process, we will make clear arrangements to ensure the production process is disrupted as little as possible. We will deploy as many location-familiar calibration technicians as possible, who can find their way both quickly and independently.

Our customers In the food industry

Accredited Versus Non-Accredited

The requirement to carry out accredited calibrations and validations does not always apply in the food industry. However, accredited calibration and validation work does provide more certainty.

For example, we can guarantee:

  • Demonstrable traceable, calibrated references
  • A method that is laid down in a procedure

Kalibra is accredited by the Dutch Accreditation Council. We are authorised to issue calibration and validation certificates bearing the accreditation logo.

Kalibra specializes in calibration and validation. We also perform inspections and issue metrology examinations. What we do:


Calibration is the comparison of a measured value using a measuring system with an actually measured value with a standard to determine the deviation.


Validation of critical facilities, spaces, instruments, and equipment provides insight into whether requirements are met, and therefore whether an object is suitable for the intended goal.


Metrological inspection involves testing whether a measuring instrument complies with metrological legislation. Kalibra is a formal inspection body. We carry out inspections as an independent institution. A metrological inspection guarantees objectivity and expertise.
