JLB Madagascar, based in Tamatave, was created in 2010 in association with the French laboratory Vanalyse, specialized in the analysis of vanilla and spices and in partnership with the CTHT, local association, acting for the promotion of horticultural sectors on the East Coast from Madagascar.
Quality control: JLB Madagascar performs quality controls on exported agricultural products: vanilla, spices (clove, pepper, cinnamon, pink peppercorns, etc.) cocoa and essential oils (cloves, pepper, cinnamon, etc.).
With its own laboratory, JLB Madagascar is the first and only private and independent company in Madagascar to offer chromatographic analyzes. These techniques allow the separation of all constituents of natural products. Liquid chromatography (HPLC) analyzes make it possible to accurately determine the quantities of active ingredients. This is the reference method for measuring vanillin in pods and vanilla extracts (ISO 5565). Gas chromatography (GC) is adapted for the analysis of essential oils and their quality control.
