Specifying GFSI Certification

  • Overview
  • Why Work With NSF?

Food safety is an increasingly difficult challenge and of paramount importance for restaurants and foodservice operations in today’s complex supply chains. With more links than ever in the global food supply chain, there is greater risk of contamination and foodborne illness.

The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)

For added assurance of safe and high quality food, ingredient and beverage supplies, consider specifying Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) certification for your foodservice suppliers. GFSI provides a consistent framework to strengthen food safety along the foodservice supply chain, and increases consumer confidence.
