The target is a B2B-Centric, Online ANSI-Approved Certifying Body offering Certificate Management in the Agriculture Space, focused primarily on personalized services for clients needing GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) level audits, and is certified under ISO/IEC. The GFSI certification is a world-recognized gold-standard of food safety practices expected of food processors and manufacturers all around the globe, making it a necessary box to check for nearly anyone in the agriculture industry at nearly any level of the food handling process. Thanks to the increasing need for GFSI certification in every market with GFSI taking hold and gaining traction more and more since its introduction as an industry standard of practice, this cert-management business has seen solid TTM growth with a $2,000+ average ticket and a stellar 95% repeat customer rate. Started in 2001, this business has become a renowned leader in the space and faces very little competition due to the nature of the service offered.
This business has been handcrafted with longevity & sustainability in mind, and is highly turnkey – a high-performance, well-tenured staff runs the day-to-day business with a few contracted technical mangers and auditors who step in on-demand to fill bubbles as needed.

This platform is completely web based and can be relocated anywhere in the world in terms of ownership as a result.
