Meanwhile, Konstantinos V Markou SA joins Cotton South Africa to become the second laboratory certified under the ICA Bremen International Laboratory Certification Scheme. Designed to raise the bar in the quality testing arena, the aim of the scheme is to establish an approved list of laboratories worldwide that meet a standard level of quality assurance.
Following Konstantinos V Markou SAs certification, James Knowlton of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) said: "Global standardisation of cotton testing practices is essential for providing consistent and reliable cotton quality measurements in the international marketplace."
