This paper describes a demonstrator case study of how a distributed metrology institute can bring value to the measurement infrastructure. The example is taken from the food measurement area, where the Metrology Institute of the Republic of Slovenia (MIRS) has set up a collaboration with the Slovenian National Food Reference Laboratory (NFRL) to act as the holder of the reference standard for the measurement of the content of protein in wheat. The responsibilities of the different parties are described; examples of the joint activities are given. The benefits of the co-operation are described in detail.
