Regulatory & Compliance Experts
Centuria Foods is committed to providing quality products, and we have the certificates to prove it. Our quality system rigorously tests the entire manufacturing process every step of the way. Other companies can boast claims about their products, but are they tested by third parties to verify the accuracy of their claims? Product certifications help distinguish quality products from those that are questionable, or come from unproven or unreliable sources.
Purchasing a product without certifications can come with an unnecessary risk for a consumer, where certified products help ensure the health and safety of the consumer and the quality of the product.
When choosing Centuria Foods, you are choosing a company who holds an array of certifications including NSF, NSF Organic, NSF Gluten-Free, USDA Organic and Oregon Tilth.
Obtaining these certifications is not a one-time event, they involve reoccurring on-site inspections and audits on a routine basis to ensure the rigorous health, safety, and quality standards are continuously met.
