Brooklyn-Made is the only certification program for goods manufactured in Brooklyn, New York.
Brooklyn-Made provides a quantitative, exclusive measurement of product authenticity that signals quality to consumers. It represents a platform for businesses to market and differentiate their products while promoting local business activity and engagement.
The program relies on a two-pronged approach to evaluation: a points-based scoring system as well as review from an independent advisory board. There are 3 tiers to the certification program – Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
As baseline criteria, only legal businesses headquartered in Brooklyn making one or more physical products will be considered. From there, the points-based system will evaluate a range of manufacturing activities, taking into account criteria such as share of total employees located in Brooklyn, location of product assembly, where design and development takes place, and other important factors.
