About NSF AuthenTechnologies

Our Vision:
NSF AuthenTechnologies is the premier provider of authentication solutions for the food industry. We are thought leaders in scientific methodology and partners for researchers in their product development process. We create the highest quality data and stand behind our processes with the backing of the NSF International brand.

Our Mission:
We aim to be a strategic partner for companies striving to manage their supply chains and products by offering services and research collaboration in all areas of the product development continuum. We work alongside companies to identify key risks and mitigation opportunities—regulatory or non—and generate data to help our partners make decisions that affect their business. Further, we strive to provide thought leadership and innovation to the broader scientific community via publication and transparency.


AuthenTechnologies® is now part of NSF International, a global independent public health and safety organization that provides testing, auditing, certification and consulting services for many sectors, including companies in the dietary supplement, natural product, food and seafood industries. They are headquartered in Ann Arbor, MI.

NSF International is a global leader in dietary supplement and food safety and being part of a larger business means we’ll now be able to provide added support to clients located around the world. It also means our clients have access to services from NSF, which has more than 70 years of product testing, auditing and certification expertise.

These services include:

  • Dietary supplement testing and certification. (NSF International wrote the only accredited American National Standard (NSF/ANSI 173) for Dietary Supplements and tests certifies products to this standard.)
  • Additional testing from NSF’s ISO 17025-accredited laboratories in Europe, Asia, North and Latin America.
  • Consulting, auditing, GMP and GLP testing, certification, R&D and regulatory guidance for the pharma/bio and natural products/cosmetics industries.
  • Accredited food safety and quality services across all supply chain sectors, from agriculture, produce, processing, distribution and dairy, to seafood, retail and restaurants. This includes supply chain verification and certification to the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), food fraud prevention, organic food certification, and specialty food verification and certification (including Non-GMO and gluten-free).
  • Auditing capability in more than 160 countries.

While we will now operate under a new name – NSF AuthenTechnologies® – our clients continue to receive the same high level of service.
