NSF International acquires Davis Fresh Technologies
NSF International (NSF), an independent, not-for-profit organization for public health and food safety solutions, acquired Davis Fresh Technologies, a provider of food safety audits and consulting for the perishable food industry.
The acquisition brings together two third-party food safety organizations, which will work together to provide certification and audit services to the food industry. This acquisition will also complement other services provided by NSF's organic certification subsidiary, Quality Assurance International (QAI, Inc.) and NSF Cook & Thurber, which provides food processor consultative auditing services. Key clients who will benefit from this acquisition include retailers, processors, buyers, restaurants and all companies interested in technical food safety solutions and consulting that provide brand protection.
NSF says Davis Fresh's leading position in Chile and Peru will give NSF a significant presence in the South American market, and it will provide additional audit services to meet the individual requirements of customers worldwide. This presence will also complement NSF's work in nearly 100 countries, and provide Davis Fresh clients' access to organic certification with a combined organic and food safety audit.
