“The BRC Global Standards are a leading global safety and quality certification program used throughout the world by over 17,000 certificated suppliers in 90 countries through a network of over 80 accredited and BRC recognised Certification Bodies. The BRC Global Standards are widely used by suppliers and global retailers. They facilitate standardization of quality, safety, operational criteria and manufacturers’ fulfillment of legal obligations. They also help provide protection to the consumer.”
The BRC system is based on a HACCP model (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point). This system takes a “farm to fork” approach and looks for any critical points in the operation where measures could be taken to control the safety of the products that are being produced. These areas include using approved suppliers, effective sanitation programs, shipping, receiving, handling, storage, personnel practices and staff training.
Certification to a BRC Standard demonstrates that products are manufactured and handled to a specified Standard to help ensure their safety and quality. Being a part of the Global Food Safety Initiative demonstrates our commitment to continual improvement and providing the best possible product to our customers.
