The demands for the BRC (British Retail Consortium) Global Standard Food Issue 6 are high, and with good reason. Food poisoning and contamination incidents have caused the recall of products and even in some cases the death of consumers.

By implementing this Standard, you will have established a recognized system to assist in the avoidance of recall, incorporate some of the required elements needed to prove a “Due Diligence” defense was taken, and your company will ultimately be registered in a database used by many global retailers to evaluate suppliers for future business opportunities.
