The Food Industry Hub Signposting Service

Connecting you to all major food industry resources.

The Food Industry Hub Signposting Service

The Food Industry Hub Signposting Service is a directory of resources provided by authorities and expert information institutions across the global food ecosystem.

The purpose of the signposting service is to bring together a large collection of food information resources, delivered in a way that makes it quick and easy for professionals working in the food industry to access the information they need.

Food Industry Hub is not affiliated with the websites/brands listed in the signposting service. We have chosen to include authoritative sources such as government agencies, regulatory bodies, assurance scheme providers, and data repositories because we acknowledge the enormous value these bodies bring to the food manufacturing ecosystem. In all cases, we absolutely credit 100% of the informational value to the entities linked to.

The signposting service can be filtered by category and/or subject. Some subjects are addressed by multiple categories, while some only appear in one. Depending on the combination of category and/or subject you filter for, you may get numerous results or there may be no results. In general, if you want to browse a category, it’s best to leave the subject as ‘all’. On the other hand, if you’re trying to find information on a specific topic, it can be better to specify the topic and leave category as ‘all’.

The informational resource categories are:


Alerts and Developing Risks

Food Authenticity and Integrity

Personnel, Training and Development

Reference Information – Food Industry Data


Supplier Approval


The resources are sub-categorised into the following topics:
