QualiTru Sampling Systems (formerly known as QMI), a provider of aseptic and representative sampling equipment for the food and dairy industries, has continued investing in new markets, technologies, partnerships and employees to extend its impact further. 

QualiTru recently increased its operating footprint with a 50% physical expansion of its headquarters and warehouse space located in Oakdale, Minn. Earlier this year, the company received important endorsements for its business processes and technologies by earning its certification to ISO 9001:2015 standards related to aseptic sampling products, systems and services for the liquid food industry, and its 2022 3-A Sanitary Standards certification for achieving the requirements for Standard 63-04 (Sanitary Fittings). 

QualiTru also continues to partner with universities around the world to research sampling best practices and conduct field case studies to enable farmers and quality professionals to obtain the most accurate and representative process data.

“Food producers are dealing with an unprecedented range of challenges today, including mitigating potential for bacterial contamination outbreaks, meeting stringent export requirements, navigating volatile pricing, and fulfilling extended shelf-life requirements,” CEO Ian Davis said. “QualiTru plays an increasingly important role in supporting these organizations, with proven unique aseptic, representative and hygienic sample collection technologies to help them achieve more consistent product quality and availability. As we continue providing this critical support, we appreciate the opportunity to serve and we look forward to all that the future holds for our company.”

The company also announced that Scott Larson has been hired as vice president of operations and supply chain as the company continues strengthening its impact in food quality and safety. Larson's prior experience includes work in operations, manufacturing, project management and business development in the consumer-packaged goods and distribution industries.

“We are pleased to have Scott joining our team,” said Davis. “As QualiTru continues to grow and the demand for our aseptic and representative sampling technologies increases, Scott’s role is key to ensuring we effectively and efficiently serve the thousands of dairy farms, haulers and food processing plants around the world that are wrestling with the demands of the rapidly evolving food and dairy production environment.”
