New funding from the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, along with contributions from our existing shareholders, will lead to the development of even more powerful technology to benefit Authenticate members.


With new resources and recruitment afoot, this most recent round of investment will allow us to substantially grow our in-house software and data teams in Harrogate, and accelerate development of our platform into a solution that enables food businesses to combat the industry’s greatest technical challenges.

Authenticate’s mission remains simple: To establish a joined-up approach to supply chain transparency, facilitate more efficient compliance and bring added technical insight to the world of food and drink production. We have come a long way towards achieving this since 2013, and we thank our members for being a part of it.

Now, we press on with our plans to build the best technology-led solution providing crucial support for growing demands on technical, ethical and environmental compliance, whilst helping reduce overall costs of compliance.

Authenticate’s first-ever exclusive member event will take place later this year, where we will discuss the issues that inform the development of our platform in more detail. Further information about the event will be released shortly.
