BRC Food (*)

Quality and food safety are of crucial importance for you as a company operating in the food industry. Purchasers of your products require you to offer guarantees of your firm commitment to quality and food safety. Are you able to provide these guarantees and are they accepted worldwide? Is this confirmed by an independent third party?

As part of the audit trail for BRC Food, the Vinçotte auditor is required to assess your company's ability to meet the conditions specified in the BRC Food standard. Under this heading, an examination is made of the quality system and HACCP system, along with your ability in practice to deliver products that are in line with your customers' specifications in terms of hygiene and suitable manufacturing practices. The BRC Food standard is an internationally recognised standard with over 15,000 certified companies in more than 100 countries.

  • An in-depth assessment of your quality and food safety system by a competent BRC-accredited auditor
  • A detailed audit report clearly indicating, if necessary, any departures from the BRC Food standard and allowing you to minimise your risks
  • Where appropriate, a certificate offering you the opportunity to draw your customers' attention to your efforts
  • Accredited by the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative), BRC therefore meets the requirements specified by retailers
  • Inclusion in the publicly accessible BRC register of certified companies
  • Lower costs and less time required to complete supplier audits

This standard is particularly suitable for manufacturing companies selling their products to retailers. Certification according to this internationally recognised standard is indispensable, particularly if your company supplies products to companies in the United Kingdom.

BRC has specific standards for packaging manufacturing companies (BRC IoP), for logistics centres (BRC Storage and Distribution) and for companies importing and exporting products (BRC Agents and Brokers).

Certification according to the BRC Food standard may be combined with another certification, such as certification according to the IFS standard, the ISO 22000 standard or according to the Self-Appraisal guides
