RDA Scientific Consultants

Our experts

We support our customers in regulatory, scientific and market-related affairs for the food, nutrition, cosmetics and consumer goods segments. We develop new ideas for new business areas for our customers and support them with sales and marketing issues. We also take on the entire project management on request.
The sustainable success of our national and international customers is the highest standard that we set for ourselves. This means that we know the market inside out and work reliably and professionally with expertise. We do not always say "Yes", however we find sustainable constructive solutions. What distinguishes us is that we act flexibly, creatively and quickly and are value for money into the bargain.

Do you need an expert for an official complaint or legal proceedings? You are in safe hands with Dr. Schneider and Dr. Gebhart, as both of them are publicly appointed by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce for Munich and Upper Bavaria and are sworn experts for food chemistry. Dr. Schneider is also an authorised expert for control tests.

Our competent interdisciplinary team is in a position to resolve complex scientific and regulatory issues for you. We provide advice and guidance on the basis of our knowledge, expertise and experience, in cooperation with our network of external experts.
We cooperate closely with the law firm Meisterernst Rechtsanwälte in order to clarify any legal questions that may arise.
