ALS is the UK’s leading provider of analytical testing services, offering a range of microbiological and chemical testing combined with industry-leading technical expertise and customer service.

Among the Chatteris company’s efforts praised by the judges was its expansion of allergen tests for testing meat species following the national horse meat scandal last year.

The judges said: “The team at ALS delivered a very professional and convincing case, admirably demonstrating that the business is financially sound and has grown and adapted to a changing market place.

“In particular it extended its range of allergen tests for meat speciation testing – a key development following the horse meat crisis in 2013 and developed an industry leading web based portal ensuring ALS is well positioned in a competitive, high tech market.

“A worthy winner.”
