About us

Our story

Until now, there has never been a quality standards authority for food safety management, auditing, yacht sanitation, outbreak management and outbreak control in the superyacht industry.


A vessel sanitation program, operating under the authority of the United States Public Health Service, exists for the cruise ship industry. However, the equivalent doesn’t exist for superyachts, which is why we have created the Maritime Food Authority (MFA).


With an ever-increasing number of private and charter yachts operating around the world, it is more important than ever to implement quality standards for food safety management, vessel sanitation, auditing, outbreak management and outbreak control within the global superyacht industry.


Our MFA accredited training, developed in collaboration with Highfield Qualifications, is designed to prevent problems before they occur.
