QAI is able to provide access to certifications for gluten-free, non-GMO, plant-based, raised without antibiotics, kosher and food safety, as well as honey sourcing and sustainability claims verification, through our strategic partnerships with NSF International and STAR-K. By combining your certifications, we can help you save time and money.
NSF International’s gluten-free certification allows manufacturers and retailers to verify that their ingredients and products are gluten-free through robust cross-contamination controls, auditing, testing and inspection. Our certification is compliant to the U.S. FDA’s Gluten-Free Labeling Final Rule and provides you and your shoppers with the power of knowledge. Visit NSF’s Gluten-Free Certification web page to learn more.
NSF International provides certification to the Non-GMO Project and NSF's non-GMO program to cover the breadth of products in the marketplace. Visit NSF’s Non-GMO Certifications web page to learn more.
Raised Without Antibiotics
NSF International’s Raised Without Antibiotics certification provides consumers with assurance that the animal products they buy have been produced without exposure to antibiotics used in human medicine. This certification brings credibility and consistency to the on-package claim and covers all animal products such as meat, poultry, seafood, fish, dairy and eggs. Visit NSF’s Raised Without Antibiotics web page to learn more.
Honey is one of the most frequently adulterated products in the marketplace. To provide trust and transparency for this product, NSF International provides True Source Honey certification to independently verify the product’s origins and compliance with U.S. and international trade laws. NSF also provides Made with True Source Honey certification for products containing honey. Visit NSF's Honey Traceability web page to learn more.
QAI, in partnership with STAR-K, provides a joint kosher and organic auditing program. Through rabbinical supervision, products can be certified to both the strictest kosher certification requirements and to organic standards such as USDA, Canadian Organic Regime, Quebec Organic Reference Standards, EU organic standards and the Japan Agricultural Standard (JAS). Earning both kosher and organic certification for your products provides added value. Visit NSF's Kosher web page to learn more.
Certified Plant Based
Plant-based foods are one of the fastest-growing food and beverage categories. As the certification agent to the Plant Based Foods Association, NSF International provides Certified Plant Based (CPB) certification that makes it easy for consumers to choose alternatives to meat, egg and dairy products that do not contain any animal-derived ingredients. The CPB certification mark can set your brand apart by providing consumer assurance that your foods are truly plant based.
