By Staff

The Guelph Food Technology Centre (GFTC) has merged with NSF International. As a result, GFTC’s current members and clients will benefit from a broad array of NSF food safety training, auditing and certification services that include seafood, organic and global food safety certifications as well as support from NSF International, the largest food safety certifier in the agriculture sector, with a global network of auditors and testing laboratories.

Going forward, the organization will be known as NSF-GFTC. The NSF-GFTC team and location will remain in Guelph, Ontario, as will their dedication to helping Canadian farmers, processors and manufacturers remain competitive with innovative solutions to help improve their products and processes.

NSF-GFTC clients will now have access to a wider range of technical resources to develop new products and meet global food safety standards, which incorporate sustainable practices. Clients will also have the support of a global network of associated laboratories in Europe, China, the U.S. and Latin America.

In addition to food safety services, NSF International also provides water quality and sustainability services to test and certify products that come in contact with drinking water and to help companies green their products, operations, systems and supply chains.
