To have your honey tested, send approximately 50 g of honey in a plastic pottle with a screw lid. A well-mixed, representative sample is required.
Download and complete our Analysis Request Form either in PDF format or as a Word document, and send it along with your samples to:

Don’t forget to label each sample container with a unique name or code, matching the Sample Identification that you write on the Analysis Request Form. We will invoice you when we report your results.
Please email the Sample Reception team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are sending more than 40 samples to make the most of our testing prices and turnaround times.
