I highly recommend the biosecurity service provided by IVS.

RJ'l Licorice Ltd has been using the expertise of IVS for approximately two years. We have found their level of experience and professionalism to be excellent and they have always delivered our requirements in a timely and efficient manner. Their training programmes have been thorough and staff found the training to be informative and practical. As a result of our partnership with IVS we have recently had our MPI audit period extended to 18 months as a reflection of being a 'well maintained' facility. I have no hesitation in recommending IVS as a quality supplier and look forward to our continuing partnership.
