BRCGS Food Safety
Food safety is of critical importance when working in the food supply chain. The BRCGS Global Standard for Food Safety gives your brand an internationally recognised mark of food quality, safety and responsibility.
Food safety is important at every stage of the food supply chain. It protects consumers, meets legal obligations and safeguards your brand.
BRCGS (Brand Reputation through Compliance) is a market-leading global brand that helps build confidence in the supply chain, offering a suite of standards where certification provides a mark of food quality, safety and responsibility.
The BRCGS Global Food Safety Standard has set the benchmark for nearly 25 years. Adopted by over 22,000 sites in more than 130 countries, the standard is accepted by 70% of the top 10 global retailers, 60% of the top 10 quick-service restaurants, and 50% of the top 25 manufacturers. Now in its 9th edition, the Standard has constantly evolved to protect the consumer. It was the first standard to be GFSI benchmarked, as well as introduce food safety culture requirements, define food fraud, and reduce audit burden through additional modules.
Developed with input from industry, BRCGS Food Safety provides a framework to manage product safety, integrity, legality and quality, and the operational controls for these criteria in the food and food ingredient manufacturing, processing and packing industry.
The BRCGS Standard demands high levels of compliance and the certification programme is wide ranging, including food safety planning, site and process controls, and gaining management buy in. You can also bolt-on the Food Safety Culture Excellence module to your next audit. As your food safety partner, we can support and guide you through the whole process.
Gaining BRCGS Certification gives your brand an internationally recognised mark of food quality, safety and responsibility. The programme is fully approved by the Global Food Standard Initiative (GFSI) and is designed to be efficient, reducing the need for multiple audits and helping you to improve your processes and save time and resources. Becoming part of more than 28,000 BRCGS certified manufacturers in 130 countries, you will benefit from increased consumer confidence and open your business to new opportunities.
