Our track record of working from farm to fork with multi-site supermarket retailers and wholesalers in the UK, Europe and globally is proven.

Through our cost-effective delivery, we make your supply chain quality and safety challenges our work and free you up with confidence to focus your resources on innovation and adding value to your business.

Supply chain assurance is a critical issue for all retailers sourcing in the complex global supply network and handling an ever increasing number of regulatory, ethical and environmental challenges.

Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS)

One of our core services is improving 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.
