FOSS was founded in 1956 by the innovative engineer Nils Foss. His ambition was to offer automated and profitable alternatives to the tedious analyzes that were carried out in the food and agriculture sector. And even though things have changed a lot in more than 60 years, our business approach and the development of innovative analytical solutions has not.

Our analytical instruments improve the measurements and turn them into an information management that allows companies to carry out an intelligent production based on data, wasting less and obtaining greater performance. By controlling cost and quality in all sectors and value chains, we help food and agricultural producers limit the number of human errors, scale their businesses more quickly and reduce manual labor, in addition to expenses labor It is what we call "analytics beyond measure".

We cover these food and agricultural sectors: Dairy, feed and fodder, grain, flour milling and processing of oil seeds, laboratories, meat, analysis of raw milk and wine.

During the last 60 years, we have dedicated ourselves to defining the standard of analytical solutions for the food and agriculture sector. We were pioneers in advanced analysis for challenging production environments in the 1960s, as well as being the first to integrate the analysis of chemical composition into process lines. Now our resolution and ambition have also made us the international reference in the field of chemometrics and analytics in real time.
