Founded in New Zealand in 2007, Oritain is now a group of companies spread across the world and we are on a mission to partner with like-minded businesses to establish some of the world’s most transparent, trusted, and sustainable supply chains.

We believe in harnessing the power of forensic science and data science to be able to independently verify product origin claims.
