Escalex Limits News and Alerts

Escalex Limits News and Alerts published its last issue in October 2020. We made this difficult decision in order to focus our resources on products and services in the sciences of food and health, and on our activities as an educational charity.

We have had wonderful feedback from our newsletter readers and we appreciate everyone who took the time to share their opinions and ideas with us over the past few months.

This webpage will remain live until 5 February 2021. If you would like to be able to read previous issues, we encourage you to download the pdfs to ensure that you do not lose access.
