Food Safety Certification for Hospitality, Retail, Catering & Services

A priority for consumers: Transparency and food safety are what matter most!

Consumers have never been as critical and demanding in choosing food as they are today. Food source, animal welfare, environmental concerns, social standards, and much more are now central to purchase decisions. In a survey of 1,500 US citizens, 94 percent said that they want producers, retailers, restaurants, and caterers to provide clear information on these aspects. At the same time, disposable income is rising in many countries around the world and many consumers are willing to pay more for greater transparency.

But to demonstrate high standards of food safety, businesses require recognized certification from a neutral party. As one of the world's leading auditing and certification organizations, we are therefore able to assist you in this area. This makes us the ideal partner for verifying your performance against international standards.
