Food safety management
The Maritime Food Authority 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.
A vessel sanitation program, operating under the authority of the United States Public Health Service, exists for the cruise ship industry. However, a similar program didn’t exist for superyachts, which is why the organization created, the MFA accredited training program.
