Farm assurance guarantees that end-consumers can be sure that the food they purchase from the stores is safe to eat and produced with respect to the standards. It is as well highly beneficial to the farmers to protect their products and brands and helps them support a sustainable business that can keep up with or exceed competition. NSF uses its knowledge, field experience and modern audits systems and softwares to make this happen.

LEAF Marque Certification
Farmers who use Integrated Farm Management principles to improve the value and sustainability of their farms in terms of food production can become LEAF Marque certified.
LEAF Marque is governed by seven key areas: Soil management, Resilience of cropping systems, Water use and quality, Use of energy sources and efficiency, Waste management, Livestock management, Enhancing the management of native habitats and biodiversity.
By addressing these areas, you will be able to monitor your performance, identify strengths and weaknesses, and set targets for improvement across your business. Major retailers across Europe are asking all the suppliers to achieve LEAF Marque certification.
To become LEAF Marque certified, you need to be certified to other schemes, such as GLOBALG.A.P., Red Tractor Assured or Horticultural schemes, e.g., OHAS.
If you are beginning your journey with certification to these schemes or wish to transfer to NSF, we are ready to support you.

We also offer tailored services to your business, like standards development, consulting, training and support in all agricultural activities from your farm to the food production facilities.
We can also give you support on responsible sourcing involving animal welfare.
