Cereal Research Laboratory OFICE (Oficina de Investigación Cerealista – Cereal Research Bureau), also known as L.I.C. (Laboratorio de Investigación Cerealista – Cereal Research Laboratory) was founded in 1947 as a point of reference for the analysis and testing of wheat, flour and other cereals for breadmaking.
Over the years, the growing demand for analysis and testing services meant that the laboratory was extended and consolidated in new fields of work. It specialised in the areas of agrarian production and distribution, animal nutrition, human foodstuffs and the pharmaceutical industry. Specialisation has always been a priority, not only in analysis but also in professional, technological and legal consulting.
In November 2003, OFICE moved from its old facilities at number 1, C/Gràcia in Barcelona, to the current address in the town of Castellgalí (Barcelona province), where the premises extend to approximately 800 m2. This move made it possible for us to extend our infrastructure, equipment and services, as well as to improve the quality of our services: our main objective since the Laboratory was founded in 1947.
