LTL Group Now Offers COVID-19 Audits and Lab Tests


COVID-19 is something the food, beverage and packaging industries are going to have to deal with for a while to come even though this is unchartered territory for most of the industries.

With LTL Group’s experience and knowledge, they can find an affordable way to help the industry and the greater community, In addition to their usual hygiene, health and safety audits, they have introduced COVID-19 inspections coupled to post-cleaning walk-throughs. During these inspections, they can take a risk-based approach to your facility. Auditors take environmental swabs, which are then tested at a SANAS-accredited laboratory, using an internationally approved COVID-19 environmental test kit.

LTL has partnered with MLS National Laboratories Services and Supplies, which boasts a large national and international footprint with laboratories located in Midrand and Cape Town. Through this partnership, they can now ensure that regardless of where the audit takes place, they’ll get the samples to the laboratory in a timely manner and clients will get their results as soon as possible. The tests currently used by the labs to test for COVID-19 is a RT-PCR kit that can rapidly detect the SARS-COV-2 virus.

We want to work with our current and prospective clients to ensure that their facility and products are the safest they can be. With restaurants and catering in the process of reopening for sit-down, we want to help ensure they meet all requirements to reopen. We are offering a discount for everyone in these industries for COVID-19 inspections and COVID Environmental tests.
