Quality and food safety are key for your company operating in the food industry. Purchasers of your products require you to offer guarantees of your company’s commitment to quality and food safety. Are you able to provide these guarantees and are they accepted worldwide? Does an independent third party confirm this? Do your customers require you to proof that with certification against the BRC Food standard? Do you want your company to be audited by a well-reputed certification body with experienced auditors knowing your business?
BRC Food has been developed to specify the food safety, quality and operational criteria required to be in place within a food manufacturing organization to fulfill obligations with regard to legal compliance and protection of the consumer.
