Across the globe, meals have largely become an “international affair” for consumers. During a typical dinner, a family on either side of the equator can dine on beef from Argentina, lettuce from Columbia, strawberries from Mexico, mushrooms from China, cheese from New Zealand, and spices from Turkey.

In today's global marketplace, consumers are demanding assurances they are purchasing safe and quality food products. Wanting the same assurances, a growing numbers of retailers and manufacturers are requiring suppliers to demonstrate their commitment to safe and quality products through highly recognized global certification schemes, such as those that are benchmarked and recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).

Mérieux NutriSciences Certification LLC is an independent subsidiary of Mérieux NutriSciences established to provide clients with certification to many internationally recognized schemes. We are accredited through the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) to provide certification for the following GFSI programs:

  • SQF Safe Quality Food
  • BRC Global Standard for Food
  • FSSC 22000 
Food Safety System Certification

We can also offer formal certification to:

  • Freshcare Food Safety & Quality*
  • Freshcare Environmental*
  • HACCP, GMP and GAP
  • HARPS (Harmonised Australian Retailer Produce Scheme)

*Freshcare training is a pre-requisite for Freshcare certification. At least one person (per grower) must be trained and accredited by Freshcare before the Freshcare audit can be arranged. Contact us if you need our assistance to find a Freshcare trainer in your area.
