Global Ingredient Certification Program Ensures Food Safety

Food Safety is Always Top Priority
It’s almost become a refrain: food safety is more important than ever before. While some may tire of hearing it repeated, the landscape of this industry is constantly changing to further emphasize the significance of safe, authentic ingredients. Consumers want to feel confident that when they select food and beverage products, brands have tested and approved each ingredient.
