Where to send your samples?
Most beer, wines and spirit analysis is done at our Nutfield site whereas food analysis is carried out primarily at our Chipping Campden site. If
you are unsure to which site you should send your samples then please check with your contact at Campden BRI or call
+44(0)1386 842000 and ask to speak to a member of our support team.
Please ensure you pack and label your samples correctly so that we can deal with them efficiently and get the results back to you without delay.
Damaged samples or having to hold samples until we can get health and safety clearance can cause delays. Please help us to avoid this.
If you would like further information please email us at
