Following an intensive three-day audit with the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard for Food Safety, we have been awarded our first AA grade across our three operations.
We have had A grades consistently for the past ten years, but we have continually improved and enhanced all three of our sites, leading to us achieving the highest standard in food safety. We’re delighted to have achieved the top level AA grade this time, demonstrating our commitment to supplying high quality, safe products to our customers in the food manufacturing, retail, hospitality and catering sectors.
The quality and safety of our products are our top priority so we’re extremely proud that our achievements have been recognised and rewarded with this exceptional grade. The award also acknowledges the dedication and commitment of our management and employees, who work so hard to uphold the highest standards in all areas of work. We’re committed to maintaining this standard and to build on this success to maintain our strong position in the food industry.
This result is a real boost for our team and it confirms to us, and our customers, that we operate to a globally recognised standard for food safety, and that our facilities are second-to-none.
The audit is a well-established standard and is a certification programme recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), which is trusted by retailers and buyers worldwide as a mark of the highest standards in food manufacturing.The audit assesses the rigorous standards covered in the BRC Global Standard, including senior management commitment and performance, HACCP, product and process controls, and health and safety.
