Amtivo Group is delighted to announce the strategic acquisition of UK Food Certification (UK Food Cert) a leading provider of BRCGS certification. When combined with Amtivo’s existing range of services, this furthers the Group’s ability to meet the needs of the global food supply chain for high-quality certification services.
Amtivo Group CEO, Mike Tims, commented: ” Welcoming UK Food Certification Ltd to the Amtivo Group marks an important moment for Amtivo. This not only diversifies our service portfolio but also creates synergies that will elevate our position in the food certification market. We are excited about the development opportunities and enhanced value we can bring to our clients.”
UK Food Cert, as a trusted and high-performing ‘5 Star’ certification body, brings a reputation of technical excellence and customer service that complements Amtivo’s commitment to providing a wide range of services that help organisations to excel.
Phillip Knight, co-founder of UK Food Cert, said: “Over the last seven years, we have built UK Food Cert with the support of our wonderful team and loyal customers, but the time had come to finally retire. We were impressed by the Amtivo team from the outset and could see a great fit and people who would provide a safe home for our customers and team. They understand how to run a great Certification Body and share the same ethos and values, and we firmly believed they will inject new energy into the business, and take it to the next level.”
Clients of both Amtivo and UK Food Cert can look forward to an enhanced suite of services with a broader, more diverse portfolio, including a tech-enabled delivery platform, that caters to the evolving needs of both companies’ client bases. This acquisition ensures clients access a one-stop solution for their certification requirements, supporting their BRCGS and ISO certification needs in their respective industries.
