About us

Authenticate was founded in 2013 with the aim of using technology to bring greater transparency to the global food industry.

Finding that food businesses up and down the supply chain were asking for the same product data and assurance details – on multiple occasions, and in different formats – the biggest problem was not building great software but obtaining the necessary information from ever more time-squeezed parties. Our origins therefore lay with a passionate group of industry experts who saw the potential for a bespoke software solution that would enable businesses to manage data about their supply chains more efficiently with greater scope for collaboration.

Headquartered in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, Authenticate is established as one of the leading technology enterprises in the region.  As both a technology and data business, Authenticate offers a full-service solution for all matters relating to technical compliance. Since launching, our in-house software development team has worked hard to build a user-friendly platform that has been designed to solve real-life problems, using agile sprint methodology to continuously develop and test new functionality.

Our data research and client service teams, also based in Harrogate, provide first-rate customer service, offering technical support and enabling members to maximise the benefits offered by full supply chain transparency.

The business is driven by a commitment to solving the complex issues of the food industry and a belief that technology has a huge part to play in ensuring responsible and sustainable food production across the globe. Our market-leading platform now provides compliance data on over 12,000 food companies to more than 600 clients, who have helped us to build a reputation for unparalleled service and simple, progressive technology that makes a difference.
