What Is The Bord Bia Water Test?
The Bord Bia Water Test is a service created by Southern Scientific Services to help food manufacturers comply with drinking water regulations for food production for the Bord Bia Quality Audit. Because bacteria can be seriously harmful to humans if consumed above drinking water limits, Bord Bia requires that food producers of any kind ensure that “Enterococci and E. coli be absent in 100ml and the test must have been conducted within the last 3 years” (Bord Bia).
