Benefits of BRC Food Safety Certification

Again, more information on Dure Foods many certifications for our valued clients and partners. You asked, we listen and we care!

Individual consumers, consumer advocate groups, and governments are demanding safe, quality food. In response to this demand, increasing numbers of retailers and food service providers are mandating that their suppliers receive third-party certification with a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) approved scheme.

The BRC Global Standard for Food Certification aims to:

  • Promote best practices
  • Improve supplier standards and consistency, and avoid product failure
  • Eliminate multiple audits of food manufacturers
  • Support retailer objectives at all levels of the manufacturing supply chain
  • Provide concise information to assist with due diligence defense

If a supplier gains certification against the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety, it assures the customer that they are dealing with a company that reaches high levels of competence in all critical areas. They will know that their supplier is monitoring and continually improving their product quality, safety and legality, and that they have taken every possible precaution to prevent problems should there ever be a challenge made against a product. The certification audit report will be one of the documents an enforcement authority would require from a retailer or brand owner to demonstrate that their supplier was competent to produce a safe and legal product.

The BRC Standard meets the strong need to preserve the integrity of branded products. The BRC Global Standard for Food Safety is a single verification that ensures both the fulfillment of legal obligations and of customer protection.
