NSF offers a value-for money, efficient service, giving you more for less. We support your business with a flexible service to fulfil all your needs, up to and including full outsourcing of your safety and quality functions. Our track record of working globally in your sector, both ground-side and in-flight, is proven.

Services include third-party and bespoke compliance audits, supplier performance management, product assurance, responsible sourcing, fraud prevention, trading standards and even mystery shopping. Through our international laboratories we provide a global microbiological sampling service which includes trend and root cause analysis.

Our consulting and support teams offer critical support to the compliance services, through horizon scanning and insight into emerging issues, and can help you develop appropriate, forward-looking policies and systems to give you competitive differentiation.

Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS)

One of our core services is improving your FHRS scores though our audit programmes, supported by consulting, training, coaching, policy and systems development.

Nearly half of our current compliance audits include an FHRS-benchmarked assessment, allowing you to predict your score levels.

Our visits can include coaching and advisory elements which have been proven to raise scores consistently to achieve target standards across large multi-site operations.

We are working closely with the FSA’s ‘Regulating Our Future’ strategic project plan around the blueprint for third party food safety audits and sit on their expert industry advisory panel. For clients that want to benefit from Earned Recognition for their outlets when the new regulation comes into force, NSF is the partner of choice.


We place the highest value on our integrity, quality and consistency of delivery, having a unique Global Integrity Centre of Excellence that ensures the reliability, consistency and integrity of NSF operations.
