The Maritime Food Authority (MFA) is a membership quality standards authority. The MFA believes the superyacht industry deserves recognition and support for high standards in food safety management, auditing, yacht sanitation and outbreak management planning.
The MFA, working in collaboration with Highfield Qualifications, has developed the internationally recognised Manager in Charge for the Luxury Yacht Program. Every yacht that participates in the program receives annual certificates of excellence.
As the awarding body for this new program, the MFA approves training centers to deliver the qualifications and provide annual audits.
Working directly with yachts, the MFA strives to lead the way in a self-managing quality system driven by crew and yachts themselves.
The MFA is the leader for flag states and management companies in providing the solution that transparently recognises excellent standards and provides support for crew.
