Intertek, who are the exclusive global partner for True Source Honey™, LLC launched the True Source Honey Certified program in India at The Hotel Eros, Nehru Place. TSH is a global initiative to certify whole chain traceability and sustainability of ethically sourced, fairly traded honey.

Honey is one of the few remaining food products that are considered natural (or without added ingredients or other refined additives that alter the composition of the product). In an effort to protect the product, True Source Honey will work with honey companies in the countries of origin and U.S. importers to set a global standard for high-quality honey. Intertek will play an integral part in helping to set this standard, by handling all of the traceability audits and inspecting the containers of honey imported into the U.S. as registered under the True Source Honey initiative

The launch was attended by several Government Dignitaries, Diplomats and Important Industry personalities. Shree S Dave, Chairman of Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) was present as the Guest of Honor and the function was presided over by Shree Ashok Sinha, former Secretary, Ministry of Food Processing Industries.

Intertek is a leading provider of quality and safety solutions serving a wide range of industries around the world, providing audit, inspection, testing, and quality assurance and certification options. It has a network of more than 1,000 laboratories and offices and 30,000 people in over 100 countries around the world. Mr. Rajesh Saigal, Managing Director, Intertek India said on the occasion, "Intertek is very pleased that True Source Honey chose our expertise. We look forward to applying our skill to ensure that the complete honey supply chain is protected."

Besides Intertek, Grant Thornton, one of World’s leading audit, tax and advisory firms, has been exclusively appointed by True Source Honey, LLC (TSH) for the purpose of conducting Financial Audit for companies interested in applying for TSH certification in India. Mr. Mehra, Director, Grant Thornton India said, “The purpose of the Audit will be to determine that the honey of Indian origin only is exported as “Product of India” to the United States.”

“We are pleased to become the first True Source Honey (TSH) Certified entity in the World. As honey circumvention is a much discussed issue all over the world today, this initiative was launched to ensure that the origin of the honey that is supplied - is certified by third party auditors.
