He has been President of the Swiss Society of Food and Environmental Chemistry and has been active in the IUPAC Commission on Food Chemistry.

Following his doctoral studies at ETH Zurich, Reto Battaglia was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Manchester (UK) in organic synthetic chemistry. In 1973 he joined the Cantonal laboratory of Zurich, later becoming deputy head. Since 1989 he has been Director of Migros Laboratories, Zurich.
