AQ Assurance Marks have changed.

AQ Assured™ and AQ Certified™ are brands of AsureQuality. In June 2020 AsureQuality launched an exciting new look. As AsureQuality continues to provide robust independent verification of supply chains and independent claims, the design of the AQ Assurance marks has changed in alignment with the overall AsureQuality brand.

Introducing the new AQ Assurance Marks:

 Aq Assured Transparency Programme Mark (002)  R            Aq Assured Transparency  Authenticity (002)   Resized

Aq Certified Animal Welfare   140                     Aq Certified Organic   140

Why has the AsureQuality Brand changed?

AsureQuality provides the broadest range of food assurance services in New Zealand, with over 100 years’ experience working with our food and primary production sectors. The journey began way back in 1875 as part of the Department of Crown Lands, which in 1892 became the Department of Agriculture. Services were split across two state-owned enterprises (AgriQuality and ASURE) in 1998, before eventually merging in 2007 to become AsureQuality.

After 13 years, we have launched new branding, to better reflect who we are today, our shared role for Aotearoa, and the services that we deliver.

What’s next for the AQ Assurance Mark?

Starting from June 2020, our partners will be progressively transitioning to the new logo on pack. As product packaging cycles can take an extended period of time to complete, there will be brands that are using either the old or new AQ Assurance marks on their products, and we expect to see both marks present in the market for the next 2 years.
