The BRC Food Safety certification has been designed to implement best practice for food safety and quality. The standard looks at the measurement, review and assessment of any factors that influence food safety. As the BRC Food Safety standard is recognised by the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative), the certification provides businesses with global recognition for food safety.
Please note that BRC is now called BRCGS – Brand Reputation through Compliance Global Standards. We are currently in the process of updating our website to reflect this change.
Many retailers, manufacturers, and food service companies will require a third-party food safety certification such as BRC Food Safety as part of their supplier approval process.
Is the BRC Food Safety standard appropriate for my business?
As a general rule, if you are handling an open product – washing, cutting manufacturing etc., then your operation is best suited to the BRC Food Safety certification. For example:
• Food Manufacturers
• Raw material and ingredient suppliers
• Packers for retail
