SAGL Personnel

The staff complement represents a group of dedicated and well-trained people.  The low staff turn-over enables us to invest in the growth of our people and create a stable analytical group.  Our staff understand the grain industry and can adapt to the constantly changing technical requirements in the testing and regulatory environment.

Our technical specialists have years of analytical, chromatography and mass spectrometry experience. The management team of the SAGL has extensive experience in managing testing laboratories and in conducting research and monitoring projects.
