Always in line with the highest safety and quality standards, the HSN factory has renewed its IFS Food certification (International Featured Standards) in 2022, achieving the highest rating: Higher Level. In 2021, HSN become the first Sports Nutrition and Healthy Eating brand with its own factory in Spain to obtain the certification. It has now achieved excellence in its first annual renewal.
IFS Food 2022
The HSN factory was awarded the IFS Food certification for the first time in 2021. It’s the most stringent international quality standards applied to food manufacturers.
You can read our blog post from 2021 discussing the importance of the certification.
In 2022, we’ve renewed it, reinforcing our commitment to maximum quality guarantees in raw material selection and processing and in the quality of our sports nutrition and healthy eating products. In fact, IFS Food not only ensures maximum safety in manufacturing processes, but also guarantees the validation of all raw materials used in all products of the 7 HSN lines.

Review: Higher Level
As excellence is the only way for us, we couldn’t stop at simply getting the certification. IFS Food has a number of standards that provide a final assessment, and we had to get the highest level.
In other words, the HSN factory has obtained the highest possible assessment in the evaluation carried out by Bureau Veritas, which audits the companies applying for IFS Food certification, a program recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)
The certificate recognises the HSN factory’s field of activity, which develops dietary supplements and food formulas, in powder form, and packaged in plastic bags. Encapsulation or compression of dietary supplements, packaged in plastic bottles. And packaging of dietary supplements, in soft gel format, in plastic bottles.
Why does HSN renew its certifications every year?
And we continue to work to excel, constantly striving for quality, safety and excellence!
Some people wonder why we renew our quality and safety certificates, including IFS Food…
The answer is simple. Certificates related to the manufacture of food and food supplements are validated every year. And all certifications are public. To ensure transparency with our customers, we ensure we have all our certifications up to date at HSN. You can find them on our HSN Quality Assurance page.
Take note! We make sure our certifications are there for everyone to validate. Make sure other brands can do so as well to ensure quality and safety in their factories and your products. And remember, at HSN, we manufacture our products in-house.
Other quality and safety certificates
HSN has also been able to renew two other certificates from our factory: GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points).
