IEH was founded in 2001 by Dalia Alfi and Mansour Samadpour. It is a family-owned and operated company and has grown rapidly since 2001, both organically and through acquisitions. Our success is fueled by the dedication of our team of scientists, laboratory analysts, food safety experts, consultants, and support staff.
Our range of testing services include full service microbiology, analytical chemistry, allergens, analysis of bioengineered foods, toxicology, forensics, whole genome sequencing, metagenomics, and bioinformatics.
Our consultants have expertise in crisis management, crisis prevention, epidemiology, infection control, preparation of environmental monitoring plans, sanitation assessments, process authority, thermal and aseptic processing, validation studies, challenge studies, determination of shelf life and shelf life extension, labeling, risk assessment, and gap analysis.
We have worked with companies on some of their most challenging problems such as outbreaks, recalls, and plant closures. IEH responds rapidly and effectively as a source of external subject matter expertise, preparing enhanced food safety plans to stabilize the situation and keep facilities open and operational, while contributing to an overall resolution of the crisis. In support of crisis management, we offer litigation support, forensic analysis and reviews of claims.
The IEH Academy offers a comprehensive array of virtual and in-person instructor-led training, as well as eLearning courses covering a wide range of topics in food safety and sanitation. Training is offered at levels ranging from C-Suite to line workers.
