Can we convince you with speed and precision?
We are committed to delivering reliable results quickly and efficiently.
Founded in 1952, vg was instrumental in driving the growth of the grain processing industry in Austria. Through continuous innovation, we offer a head start for your order in terms of expertise, speed and flexibility. Especially in the high season, we process samples the same day we receive them so you get your results on time. We are the only independent institute in Austria to offer this advantage. High-tech solutions, such as our laboratory information management system and high-end laboratory equipment, ensure that you have high-quality data at hand quickly and inexpensively. In this way, we give even small and medium-sized enterprises access to the full range of professional research and development services.
