NSF International is an accredited, third-party certification body that tests and certifies products to ensure they meet very stringent public health and safety practices. Products that meet these standards bear the exclusive NSF Mark, which is respected internationally by consumers, manufacturers, retailers and regulatory agencies.
“We take the quality of our products very seriously at Foremost,” said CEO Marcos Fong, “NSF certifies our water processing procedure from the very beginning through to the filling and distribution points. Achieving NSF Certification is a badge of honor for us and says to our customers that they can trust that they are providing the very best water for their families.”
Foremost’s water products are also certified by sthe Department of Public Health and Social Services, the FDA, and Guam EPA. “We are also inspected and certified by the U.S. Navy,” Fong said, “the NSF certification reinforces that our locally-branded Foremost products meet or exceed international standards.”
According to their website, NSF states, “No other independent testing programs require companies to comply with the strict standards imposed by NSF and its product certification programs. From extensive product testing and material analyses to unannounced plant inspections, NSF is the only third-party testing organization to undertake a complete evaluation of every aspect of a product's development before it can earn our certification.”
NSF International, founded in 1944 as the National Sanitation Foundation, is known for the development of standards, product testing and certification services in the areas of public health, safety and protection of the environment.
Foremost water is available in 20oz, 1L, and 1 and 5-gallon sizes.
